    Just ones and twos or threes. Not enough to make the national news, like the vast majority of gun deaths.

    Man accused of murder fired 15 shots at victim's car. Carroll Daily Times Herald, 3/26/13 (subscription required).

    Benton Wingrove picked a fight with another man in a Dow City bar this month, and when the two decided to take the argument outdoors, Wingrove went to the bar’s cash register, pulled a handgun from the waist of his pants and put it under the register, a witness told investigators.
    Ten minutes later, he came back and got his handgun.
    Wingrove called 911 at about 1:40 a.m. and told a county dispatcher: “I just shot my pistol at a car that swerved.”
    Investigators found 15 shell casings and bullet holes in the victim's car.
    [The victim's] car crashed into a garage about two blocks from where Wingrove allegedly shot at the car. [The victim] was taken to Crawford County Memorial Hospital in Denison, where he was pronounced dead at 2:20 a.m.
