Squad Member Cori Bush had her car shot at in St. Louis.
According to reports, there is no evidence her car was targeted.
My car took the bullets. I am safe.
When I say that I am the people I serve, it’s not a slogan!
A bullet went through my door handle on one side of the car, another went through my tire on the other side.
I’m committed to taking us from “surviving St. Louis” to “living it.” pic.twitter.com/iBqSSzc43G

I'm touched by everyone who has reached out. Thankfully no one was harmed.
But any act of gun violence shakes your soul.
That's why our movement is working to invest in our communities, eradicate the root causes of gun violence, and keep everyone safe. https://t.co/AZHLUwiN6O

She is a leading defund the police advocate:
Bush, the Show Me State’s first black female lawmaker who defeated Democratic incumbent Rep. Lacy Clay in 2020, has become a leading voice in the national “defund the police” movement.
Last summer, as cities — including her own — were being rocked by violence, police officers were being targeted (in St. Louis, a former police captain, David Dorn, was gunned down), and citizens were under siege and dying, she justified spending thousands of dollars per month on her own private security, while still calling for defunding police (which would leave her less-well-to constituents completely at the mercy of criminals).
In August, CBS host Vladimir Duthiers asked Bush to respond to criticism over having spent some $70,000 on private security by that time.
