BOONE COUNTY, Ky. (Brad Underwood) -- A Price Hill man is in the Boone County jail, after police said he fired several shots a SUV occupied by his son's mother and grandmother. Police said Mirado Crow, 25 shot into the SUV after a custody exchange between him and his sons mother, Heather Brockman. Also in the car, Brockmans mother, Pandora Brockman and Heathers boyfriend, Steven Lang.
Heather Brockman says she and Crow were never married and from the beginning, custody has always been an issue for Crow. I think he knew he was having a losing battle and he just snapped, I didn't even know he had a gun, said Heather Brockman.
Heathers mother said every Sunday and Monday, they would meet Crow for at UDF gas station off of KY 18 so that Crow could have his supervised four hour visit with his son.
Pandora Brockman says Sundays exchange went fine. Then the trio went to go see a friend. Along the way, they saw Crow driving in the same neighborhood near Pebble Creek Way and Spring Cove. Then Pandora says, Crow saw them.
"When he turned around, I said I'm out of here, said Brockman. I backed out and he started shooting at us."
And he kept shooting according to Pandora. "I could see his hand outside of his window on the top part of his car with a gun, I said gun and he shot again before I took off.
Pandora says while she was driving away, Crow followed and continued to shot at the SUV. During the shooting, two-year-old Wyatt was in Crows car.
"I popped my head up for a little bit, looked up and saw the gun and slammed myself back on the floorboard of the car, said Heather Brockman."
The back windshield of Brockman's SUV shattered, and there is still a bullet lodged in the backseat. Brockman says the Police told her to leave the vehicle at her house until detectives can collect evidence from it.
