FRESNO, Calif. — Authorities in central California say someone is randomly shooting at vehicles and that at least 10 have been struck by bullets. No major injuries have been reported.
Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims said Thursday a woman who was sitting in one of the vehicles was wounded by shrapnel.
Mims says detectives are looking for a dark-colored, four-wheel-drive pickup with oversize tires and an extended or crew cab.
She says the shootings started Nov. 27 and that eight vehicles have been struck by bullets in Fresno County and another two in Madera County. In each case, the victims said they heard loud bangs as a pickup truck passed them heading the opposite direction.
The most recent incident was reported Sunday, reports the Los Angeles Times. Mims said the shootings tend to occur during morning around 6:30 or 6:40 a.m. or during the afternoon between 2:20 or 4:40 p.m., when some drivers are commuting to and from work, the paper reports.
The incidents have been reported miles apart. Some drivers initially assumed their car was struck by a rock and don’t notice bullet holes in their vehicle until arriving home, the paper reports.
“We have not determined what a motive is or could be for these shootings. They all appear to be completely random,” Mims said.
A $6,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the shooter’s arrest. Anyone with information is asked to call Fresno County authorities at (559) 600-3111. Anonymous tipsters can call (559) 498-7867.
