California Highway Patrols have been stepped up in response to a sniper with a pellet gun believed responsible for shooting out the windows of dozens of cars on three Inland Empire freeways.
CHP Officer Andrew Thompson told KTLA that the sniper might be driving the freeway near his targets, which have been reported on the Riverside (215), Ontario (15) and San Bernardino (10) freeways over the last three weeks.
No one has been injured in the seemingly random attacks, but car windows have been shattered by "an unknown projectile -- probably a BB or pellet," Thompson told the news station.
