CHICO, Calif. -

Butte CountyIt was a horrific afternoon for a couple driving near Chico State University campus this afternoon. A driver drove up next to them and pulled out a gun. The victim and his girlfriend told police they were at the intersection of W. 2nd and Walnut Streets at 2:11 pm.

Police say the victims are not cooperating. And that they’re working with limited details. Chico Police Dispatch requested the victim to stay at their location, but the victim kept driving and headed to a daycare.

The suspect’s car is described as a silver newer model Infiniti. The driver is described as a Hispanic man.
