She and fiancé Zach said they hit their car 13 times – and the police didn’t understand how they all made it out alive.
Cheyenne Floyd starts the new season of “Teen Mom: The Next Chapter” with a big bang: He and his family survived an apparent drive-by shooting.
At the top of the premiere, Floyd admitted that she wasn’t “transparent” about everything “really going on” in her life—before she and fiancé Zach Davis revealed the horrific ordeal.
“I feel like I’ve painted this moment, this exact moment so many times, as far as how we were going to explain it. You never think it’s going to be you. Or you never Thinking something like this would happen to you,” began Floyd. “I never thought anything like this would happen to me.”

Zach explained that the two were headed to a doctor’s appointment with their 1-year-old son Ace and 5-year-old Ryder, who Floyd shared with ex Corey Wharton, when it happened.
“We’re just riding, normal car days and Che looks at me and goes, ‘What’s that?’ And I had a green ray on my face,” she recalled. “When I saw the beam across Zach’s face, I saw it. I was in complete and utter shock,” Floyd said.
Davis said, “I looked at whose hand the gun was in and it was someone we both knew. Not only do we know him, he’s here, there are pictures with him and all of a sudden, you start hearing shots.” “He hit the car 13 times. We got hit in the back of a Prius. It was the worst feeling in the world.”
The two did not disclose who allegedly fired at them or speculate what the motive for the shooting might have been.
“It’s a miracle we’re still here and God literally covered us that day because every cop out there said they didn’t understand how we all survived,” Floyd said. “And hearing it over and over again, I wished they all would stop saying it because I had to pinch myself to make sure I understood I was alive.”

Later, the two prepare to face the suspect in court – something that will be an emotional test for both of them.
Floyd said she felt “panic,” “angry” and severe anxiety, while Zach said he was exhausted both mentally and physically. He also feared he would “lunge” at the suspect and “bump him on the head” when he came face-to-face, though Floyd told him to try and calm down.
The court date ended as a waste of time, as the case continued to a future date. The suspect wasn’t even there, leading Cheyenne to think they got a “zero closure” on the issue.
“At what point is this going to end?” He told his mother at the end of the episode. “Everything is just a trigger, everything is just a reminder. I feel like he didn’t kill us but he took a lot from us.”
Zach said he couldn’t get over the fact that the kids were in the car at the time of the shoot, saying Cheyenne wasn’t all that fair.
“I don’t understand why I had to go through this. I don’t know why the kids had to go through this. I don’t think it’s fair,” she said, crying in tears. “They’re just kids, they shouldn’t have to go through this. We should never have dropped our kids in the middle of the f—ing street. That’s not fair!”
The episode ends with Zach falling over his shoulder, sobbing.
