Kansas police search for suspect in highway shooting


In Kansas City, Missouri, the search for a highway gunman is intensifying.
Someone has been randomly shooting at cars and drivers for several weeks.
 
This morning, police have stepped up the hunt for a possible serial shooter in Kansas City, Missouri. Linked authorities say to at least 13 random shootings targeting drivers on interstates.
Federal investigators have joined the search, but so far, no suspects.

Kansas City Police Chief Darryl Forte "until somebody is apprehended, identified and apprehended, we'll still have resources out there."

The shootings dot areas of interstates 435 and 470, near exits and interchanges.  Key clues, experts say that could help close in on the shooter.

Brad Garrett said "Each time it occurs they get a little bit more information. A car description. A better description of the individual. He'll make a mistake maybe and somebody will actually get a tag number."

Police say three people have been injured by gunfire, with injuries to the arms and legs.

And take a look at the cars, bullet holes show the damage and close calls for drivers like Tom Mcfarlane.
"Something hit the car, didn't know what it was, so pulled over at my first opportunity and that's when I saw the bullet hole."

Drivers are on edge, knowing the shooter could strike again.

"It's really scary to think that somebody is just out here with no regard to what could happen."

In addition to patrols, police are offering a 10,000 dollar reward for information leading to an arrest.
