GOLD COAST — A video shows dirt bikers surrounding a driver and firing shots at her car Monday night in the Gold Coast.

At 10:45 p.m., the 27-year-old woman was driving her car in the 1400 block of North Sandburg Terrace when people on dirt bikes surrounded her, police said. One of them took out a gun and fired shots at her, police said.

The car was hit, but the woman was not wounded, police said. The dirt bikers took off.

A video taken from above shows a Mini Cooper driver reversing in an intersection, knocking over a dirt bike. Someone walks up to the car, their arm outstretched, as the driver continues to reverse.

The driver moves forward into the intersection and stops as dirt bikers come up to her side. There’s a sound of someone firing shots, and the driver takes off.

The bikers and the Mini Cooper driver leave in different directions.
