Legendary former Dallas Cowboys executive Gil Brandt was voted to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in February and will be inducted this August in Canton. On Thursday, as he and his wife drove to visit a friend, they narrowly avoided tragedy.

Brandt shared on his Twitter account that they had missed their turn and were turning around on the next exit when someone shot at their vehicle. His wife, Sarah, was nearly struck.

True story. Sara and I were driving to see a friend in Billings just now, missed our turnoff and turned around at the next exit where someone shot at us. Bullet comes through windshield and just misses Sara. Waiting on police. So, how’s your day going?

I want to thank officers Matt Frank (left) and Tony Nichols of the @BillingsPD for their assistance. We dodged a bullet today. https://t.co/Kdt1h28fVE pic.twitter.com/fM4xy5DvG6
