(Newser) – A sniper who has been using a San Francisco-area freeway for target practice has hit nearly a dozen cars over the past two weeks, KGO-TV reports. Police are trying to find the perpetrator—who they say may be using an air-powered rifle from nearby hills or parks—before someone is killed. One victim was hit while driving home with his wife and child Saturday night.

“The passenger’s side window of the car blew out and blew glass all over the car,” the driver said. “If I had a little vigilante-ism in me, I would probably go out and try to find him myself. It's only by luck that my wife wasn’t seriously injured.”
