Following a rash of shootings targeting vehicles on the roads and highways in and around Kansas City, municipal officials are hoping the F.B.I. will help connect the dots behind the mysterious melee.
On Monday, Kansas City’s Chief of Police Darryl Forté sat down with representatives from the FBI to discuss the 13 reported cases of vehicles being targeted by unknown gunmen. Although three people have been hurt so far, none of the injuries were life threatening, according to the Associated Press.
“Some of the people didn’t realize they were being shot at, so when the incidents were reported they were taken down as possible property damage,” Capt. Tye Grant told the AP.
The incidents share similarities in location, timing and circumstances, but officials have been unable to retrieve any physical evidence that could connect them.
Forté is set to continue meeting with representatives from the FBI and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, which is offering a $7,000 reward for information leading to arrests.
