PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities are investigating whether a drive-by shooting on a metro Phoenix freeway is related to a string of recent shootings or is an isolated incident.
Arizona Department of Public Safety spokesman Raul Garcia said Saturday that state troopers responded to reports of someone shooting at a vehicle on the Loop 101 freeway in the northwest Phoenix suburb of Peoria.
Garcia says a man in a tan pickup truck pulled alongside another vehicle and fired multiple shots, shattering the other driver's window and a rear passenger window.
No one was hurt and the pickup exited the freeway a short time later.
Phoenix residents have been rattled by a series of random vehicle shootings on Interstate 10 between Aug. 22 and Sept. 10 involving bullets or projectiles. A man has been charged in four of the 11 shootings as the investigation continues.
