But the good news is it was just a high-powered pellet gun, and the suspect just shoots out windows of cars...the suspect must not be terribly bright, as he's shot at marked police cars as well!

Three cops get shot at and none of them turn around to catch the guy?

If the guy is perched on one of the rocky hills along the road, he'd have plenty of time to escape if he saw the police getting out of their car and following. Best thing is probably just to publicize it, someone will be bragging or maybe multiple people are involved... they won't last long.

Maybe the cops aren't too bright either! LOL! yeah, you would think ONE of them would have nabbed the suspect......scary thing is that he/she might still be shooting, so be careful in that area...my guess it that its a teenage kid around 15, but I could be wrong....indeed, if he knows word is out, he'll prob stop....I still would hate to think what would happen if someone got shot in the head by a high-powered pellet......I would imagine it could kill someone if they get shot in the temple or another vital spot...sounds like the kid IS aiming for windows..

Why don't they just put people up in the hills to watch and see who it is, and then shoot high powered pellets at his backside?

Oh, geez, more ammo for the anti-gun nuts... Well, I guess we need to have all BB and Pellet guns registered, along with the ammo...Yes, more wasted tax dollars....Makes about as much sense...
