Fear Factory guitarist Dino Cazares says the Los Angeles Police Department is investigating after his car was struck by a "big bullet" early Thursday.

Cazares informed his followers of the incident via Twitter, including photos of his vehicle's damaged windshield and a close-up of the round, which is believed to be a .45 caliber bullet.

"Bullet hole in my windshield today, Los Angles Police Department asked me if I have any enemy’s [sic] I said “yes” and named 3 people," the guitarist wrote. "Let’s see where this investigation goes. LAPD said it looks like a 45 caliber, it’s a big bullet.

Cazares gave no indication that he was in the car at the time it was struck by the bullet.

When other users questioned why such a large round didn't penetrate the windshield, Cazares surmised that the bullet was stopped by the "frame bar that holds the dash and the windshield...LAPD said it was shot from half a block away."

Cazares indicated that a new Fear Factory album would arrive by this spring. Although frontman and Fear Factory co-founder Burton C. Bell departed the band in September, Cazares says the new album will include Bell's vocals, which were recorded back in 2017.
