DENVER -- One man is hospitalized and two drivers, including an Uber driver, escaped injury when multiple bullets were fired Friday morning.

The Uber driver's vehicle was hit twice, but the driver, and a passenger, were not hurt.

A second driver had three rounds go through her vehicle, but she was not injured.
