More than 50 vehicles in San Bernardino and Riverside counties have been hit by projectiles over the past several weeks, according to the LA Times. The California Highway Patrol believe that BBs or pellets are the objects that have shattered windows of many rattled drivers. Luckily no one has been hurt and mostly back windows have been shot out.

With no one type of vehicle being targeted and no pattern to what time of day the incidents occurred, officials have yet to catch any suspects. They do, however, believe the assailant or assailants might be shooting from a moving vehicle. Most shootings have occurred on the 10, 15, 91 and 215 freeways.
