(Newser) – Someone has been shooting at cars along a busy street in San Jose, and police are stumped, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Cars driving on Blossom Hill Road have been fired on a reported 10 times since May. According to the Mercury News, the most recent shootings, which were announced by police this week, took place last Thursday and Friday. Authorities believe all 10 shootings are connected. While police aren't releasing many details on the shootings, including the type of gun or guns used, all 10 shootings have occurred between midnight and 3:30am in the same general area, KRON reports.

So far no one inside the cars has been struck by the bullets. But two people have suffered minor injuries from being grazed by either bullets or broken glass. There appear to be no connections between the victims other than when and where they happened to be driving. Police have assigned a number of detectives and officers to the case. And authorities are asking for the public's help identifying possible suspects. In the meantime, police are interviewing residents and handing out flyers. (Read more shooting stories.)
