On November 19, 2021 Kendrick Piggie, 32, was convicted to several years in prison after he drove his vehicle into a car containing a woman and four children, Kendrick also shot at the vehicle.
The jury found him guilty of one count of discharging a weapon into an occupied vehicle in operation, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, four counts of assault with a deadly weapon with a minor present, and communicating threats.
In February 2019 Kendrick argued with the female victim and then began a 30-minute car chase in which he followed her vehicle, which was also occupied by four children.

During the chase, Kendrick rammed her vehicle, brandished a gun, and threatened to kill her. In fear, she ultimately drove to a police precinct, where Kendrick rammed her car twice before shooting at her vehicle six times.
Two of the gunshots struck the victim’s vehicle. Then Kendrick fled the scene and wrecked his car only a few blocks away. He ran from his vehicle but was located by police at a nearby dumpster.
A judge sentenced Kendrick to 60-84 months in prison. He was also sentenced to an additional 14-26 months in prison; that sentence was suspended pending his successful completion of 36 months of supervised probation. Kendrick and the female victim had been in a tumultuous, abusive relationship for years.
