A serial shooter has apparently been targeting cars along a busy traffic corridor in San Jose, putting a community on edge and perplexing investigators in search of the assailant.
There have been ten incidents in recent months where at least one person opened fire on occupied cars driving along the Blossom Hill Road corridor, San Jose police officials said.
No one was injured in the shootings, but police said vehicles were struck by bullets.
In nearly all of the attacks, the shooter opened fire on vehicles in the cover of darkness, choosing to strike in the early-morning hours.
The first attack came on May 4 at 12:30 a.m. and was followed by a shooting on June 2 at 12:50 a.m., police said
After nearly a month of no random shootings, the attacker struck again on June 30, opening fire twice on cars around 12:35 a.m. Then on July 2, another incident was reported around that same time, police said.
There were three shootings in the early-morning hours on July 21 and July 22 and then two more on Aug. 4 and Aug. 5.
All of the attacks were along Blossom Hill Road near Poughkeepsie and Monterey roads. Police have been canvassing the area and distributing flyers in hopes someone will come forward with information about the attacks.
Anyone with information about the shootings can call San Jose police detectives at (408) 277-4161.
