The article informs that on July 26, 2003, three men armed with an AK-47, a .45-caliber handgun and a 9mm handgun ambushed two innocent victims at the TCL Car Wash on 1901 Louisiana Avenue in New Orleans, all because the victims drove the wrong car. The police described the attack as a case of mistaken identity. The police caught all three assailants based on the recorded digital images that the car wash owner provided to them. The images were of such high quality that investigators could see one gunman biting his lip as he opened fire on the two victims. Several cars and homes were also peppered with bullet holes, increasing the collateral damage.
