PHOENIX (KPHO/KTVK/AP) –

Danger on the freeways.

Valley drivers are on “high alert” after a series of freeway shootings over the weekend. (one week ago)

“Somebody is going to wind up dying,” said motorist Andrew Packer.

Shots have been fired at several vehicles on Interstate 10 in Phoenix over the past few days, with bullets striking four vehicles and injuring one person, according to Arizona’s Department of Public Safety.

“You should be concerned,” DPS Director Col. Frank Milstead said. “We have someone or some people shooting guns at moving cars on Interstate 10. It has not ended in a tragedy but it could.”

Milstead called a news briefing Monday afternoon (one week ago) to emphasize the need for the public’s help in solving the case.

“We do not know if these shootings are random or related, some type of serialized crime,” he said. “Our intent is the investigation is not compromised,  We are gathering statements and evidence as it is found.”

DPS spokesman Raul Garcia said two vehicles were struck between 11 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Saturday. One shooting occurred eastbound at 19th Avenue and the second occurred westbound at 35th Avenue.

A third vehicle was hit along I-10 near 16th Street at approximately 10:30 p.m. Saturday.

A fourth shooting occurred early Monday morning in the area of I-10 and 19th Avenue.

And this just in…

PHOENIX – Officials are investigating after a possible shooting on Interstate 10 on Tuesday morning. (yesterday)

Sources tell ABC15’s Christopher Sign that a Phoenix Police Sergeant was on his way to work when his passenger side window shattered near Interstate 10 and 35th Avenue.

Authorities said it is not clear if the window shattered due to a gunshot or other means, but officials are investigating.

The officer was not injured; he was in an unmarked vehicle at the time of the incident, officials said.

We wonder if this is random violence, a Black Lives Matter thing, or generic police/white persons assassination attempts?  Or a serial shooter?

The good news is no one has (yet) been injured or killed in these shootings.  And, on a personal note, with my rickety 16 year old car, I don’t drive the freeways!

Who was it who said, “I’m not concerned with the bullet with my name on it – I’m concerned with the one marked ‘To Whom It May Concern’…?

  1. I load up an armload of 30 rd magazines and just try to maintain suppresive fire driving down I-10.
    Now I’ve got to figure out a way to get brass out of a/c vents! 😉

    On a serious note, I just wish I could get through ONE DAY of not saying, “What the hell is wrong with people?”
