At the Harley Davidson Job Interview - "Fired "

Harley-Davidson employees, job candidate 'Army-crawl' to escape gunfire

I have often heard of having to "crawl" during a job interview but never "out" of one !
A story that while amusing could have had a tragic end . An out-of-town job candidate and two Harley-Davidson employees had to "Army-crawl" out of an interview after a bullet fired by a man at his ex-girlfriend shattered a third-floor conference room window at the company's corporate headquarters, according to a criminal complaint.
The bullet was among 10 to 15 shots from a semiautomatic handgun fired by Thomas B. Dright-Jackson, 34, May 22 in the 3400 block of W. Juneau Ave., according to the complaint.
Dright-Jackson is charged with first-degree reckless endangering safety, use of a dangerous weapon, and endangering safety by use of a dangerous weapon, discharge firearm into vehicle.
According to the complaint, numerous buildings were struck when Dright-Jackson stood in the middle of Juneau Ave. near a McDonald's restaurant and fired toward his ex-girlfriend and the SUV she jumped into before the driver sped away.
On the day of the shooting, the woman's father called and told her he had locked himself out of his house.
About 4 p.m., when a man identified as a family friend drove her to her father's home so she could let him in, she saw Dright-Jackson walking toward her from his car that was in the McDonald's parking lot.
Afraid, the woman ran into her father's house and locked the front door before hearing pounding on it.
Assuming Dright-Jackson was at the door, the woman waited between 10 and 20 minutes before leaving the residence and walking toward the friend's SUV. She then heard Dright-Jackson yell at her, turned and saw him pointing a gun at her and begin shooting.
The woman jumped into the SUV and heard bullets striking the vehicle as it sped away. A detective later determined the vehicle had been struck four times.
Meanwhile, one of the Harley-Davidson employees heard a quick succession of popping sounds, which he thought were fireworks. But when the window shattered he and the other two people in the conference room dropped to the floor and had to "Army-crawl" out of the room.
The employee then notified others and the building was placed on lock-down, according to the complaint.
When he was arrested the next day, Dright-Jackson said he was at home with his mother the previous day and denied being involved in any shooting.
His mother told police that she believed he had been in the front yard all day.
If convicted of both charges he could be sentenced to up to 27 and a half years in prison, according to the complaint.
