Police are hunting a sniper who is terrorising drivers on a busy US motorway.
The sniper has targeted at least ten vehicles in less than two weeks, and began on August 29th, when the sniper shot at a car and shattered the windscreen.
The car was travelling on the Interstate 10 highway in Phoenix, Arizona, and while serious injuries were avoided, a 13 year old girl was harmed.
Half an hour later, an empty tour bus was also struck, with multiple subsequent shootings following, all on an eight mile stretch of the motorway.
The crimes are being classed as ‘domestic terrorism’ and Frank Milstead, director of the Arizona Department of Public Safety, spoke to CBS news and made it very clear officials were taking it as seriously as they possibly could.
Anytime that you have multiple shootings against American citizens on a highway, that’s terrorism.Advertisement
They’re trying to frighten or kill somebody.
Both the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives have all joined the manhunt, and there is a reward of $20,000 being offered for any information that leads to the conviction of those responsible.
