California police are in the midst of a massive manhunt in order to apprehend someone suspected of shooting at automobile drivers, as reported by Reuters.
California’s Central Valley has been rocked by ten shootings throughout the past weeks, with the suspect or suspects firing from their pick-up truck at fellow vehicles.
The shootings, which began on November 27, all followed a similar pattern, all occurring in the small farming community of Kerman. As a matter of fact, each shooting has taken place within small radius of just a few square miles. Additionally, each shooting has occurred during rush hour, as reported by The Independent.
So far, one woman has been injured by these violent acts.
Fresno County Sheriff, Margaret Mims. called for the manhunt because she wants to end the violence before more people get injured or killed.
“If this keeps going, it’s going to be a matter of time before we have a murder investigation,” she said at a press conference. “That’s what we’re trying to avoid.”
Mims said that police were still working to determine a motive for the shootings, also heaping scorn on the suspect or suspects.
“We have not determined what a motive is or could be for these shootings,” she said. “They all appear to be completely random.
“This is a cowardly act and we are working very hard to find you.”
Witnesses, however, got a decent look at the vehicle behind the attacks. It is being described as a dark pick-up truck with oversized tires.
Mims has urged the public not to hesitate if they think their car is being shot at.
“What I’m asking the public to do is if this happens to you, to get to a place of safety first and then call 911 and let us know as soon as possible that this has happened,” she said.
