At least 10 vehicles struck by bullets in random shootings
FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — 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 Fresno County Sheriff’s Office is offering a $3,000 reward for information leading to the shooter’s arrest.
