Who would do something like this?!
There have been at least nine vehicle shootings over an eight-mile stretch of Interstate 10 in Phoenix, Arizona over the last ten days, according to state police in Arizona.
The shootings, which began on August 29, have seen bullets fly into a variety of cars from an unknown location off the highway.
Fortunately, the only injury reported at this time involves a 13-year-old girl who sustained a minor cut to her right ear when windshield glass was shattered from a bullet.
Colonel Frank Milstead, the director of the Arizona Department of Public Safety, spoke to reporters at a news conference Tuesday afternoon:
“It’s just a matter of time, if this continues, that we have tragedy on our roadways. If you drive that stretch of roadway, always be vigilant. Under these circumstances, be hyper vigilant.”
Authorities have brought together multiple agencies for surveillance on the highway, and the reward fund for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the shooter(s) is now up to $20,000.
Milstead even went so far as to call the shootings “domestic terrorism,” and warned drivers on that stretch of I-10 — America’s southern-most transcontinental highway — to report any suspicious activity to law enforcement.
