Wow! This is very serious. Why did it take so long for it to become public? I would have liked to have known sooner. I travel that way often. It sounds like teenagers. They don't understand how serious their actions are. Hope they make an arrest soon. What is wrong with people these days. Why do we always want to hurt each other? I just don't get it.

I travel this way on a daily basis. I'm glad I read this. The thing about the area where most of the shots are supposedly coming from, is an area where the freeway is lower than the adjacent neighborhood so the perps are likely firing from a position where they can be spotted more easily...as opposed to other sections of 680 where this could practically be done from one's bedroom window.
When the perps get caught - and they almost assuredly will if they stupidly keep this up - they will be facing some serious hard time, and crimes like these are usually committed by kids who were just in it for some laughs and never considered jail as a realistic outcome of their activities. Thus, they will be hating life when they get caught.

This was all over the news last week. It is a BB gun, so perhaps since it isn't a larger caliber gun is why it hasn't been aggressively reported? Still, check out the window that was shot out. Good grief, what is wrong with people? Web Link
