ATLANTA -- An Uber driver injured during a shooting rampage that left two others injured is trying to get back to work.
It's been more than a month since the driver, Tony Williams, was shot in the chest and arm when a man opened fire at random.
Williams, a librarian who drives for Uber part-time, had stopped at a red light at Joseph E. Boone Blvd. and Chappell Road on July 28 with a passenger in his back seat.
"Out of nowhere, I saw a figure and I heard...I heard the gunshots," Williams said. "My passenger told me to, 'Drive, drive, drive!'"
The passenger later told police that the gunman was "shooting at everyone" at random.
Police said the gunman was Tavoris Ferrell, who had been at a nearby convenience store minutes before with a woman. The two got into a car. At some point, police said Ferrell shot the woman in the face and jumped out of the car. The woman drove the car into a front yard on Oakmont Drive.
Ferrell then began firing at Williams' Uber car and at other cars at Boone and Chappel.
Two bullets struck Williams; his female passenger was injured by fragments of broken glass.
The woman who, according to police, was shot in the face by Ferrell was transported to a hospital and is still recovering.
On a fundraiser page, Tony said that he is still experiencing pain and that half of his arm is still numb due to nerve damage from the bullets entering and exiting his body.
Tony said that his insurance company deemed his vehicle, which was struck several times by bullets, to be a total loss.
"I now have to worry about paying medical co-pays for my numerous doctor visits and upcoming physical therapy, as well as having to purchase a new vehicle that I simply can't afford," he wrote on his fundraising page.
“It’s physical scars, and then there’s a lot of mental anxiety that goes along with this type of thing," Williams said. "I do feel very blessed that it wasn't worse than what it was."
