Someone shot up four separate cars over a two-month span in San Jose and police need help finding who’s responsible.
The San Jose Police Department on Tuesday asked for the public’s help in locating the person, or persons, who fired a single bullet into four moving vehicles. The shootings appear to have no connection beyond location—all occurred in the same southeast pocket of the city near intersections of Blossom Hill Road. Incidents occurred May 4, June 2, June 30 and July 2, all between the hours of midnight and 1am, and the closest cross streets were Poughkeepsie and Monterey roads.
Two of the four motorists whose cars were hit with a single bullet were reportedly injured, either by shrapnel from impact or the bullet itself, but the injuries were not life-threatening. Police aren’t sure if one or more suspects is responsible.
All of the incidents occurred while the driver was traveling down Blossom Hill Road, and the origin points of the bullets has not been discovered.
Officer Albert Morales told the Mercury News that additional resources from the department will be used in the investigation of the shootings, including detectives, special operations and patrol. SJPD is also relying heavily on the community for tips.
