Pellet Gun Shooting On Freeway

Los AngelesVan Nuys detectives are investigating a possible pellet gun shooting on the Santa Monica/405 Freeway.

On Friday, July 29, 2005, at about 8:50 a.m., Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) officers and California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers responded to a call for service, which involved a silver Chevrolet Trailblazer that was possibly shot at by a pellet gun.  A preliminary investigation revealed an unknown suspect fired a possible pellet gun at a vehicle that was traveling on the 405 Freeway near Sherman Way.  There were no injuries, however the vehicle window was shattered. 

According to the victim, there was no “ road rage” incident or other crime that preceded the occurrence. 

A possible suspect in a dark colored vehicle, possible an Impala, drove away at a high rate of speed.

According to CHP Officers at the scene, a similar incident occurred several hours earlier on the same freeway.  At approximately 3:10 a.m., a suspect fired a pellet gun at three vehicles that were driving on the 405 Freeway between Devonshire Street and Roscoe Boulevard.

Van Nuys Detective Division is handling the investigation that occurred near Sherman Way. Anyone with information can telephone Detective Kevin Stogsdill at 818-756-8371.  On weekends and during off-hours, call the 24-hour toll free number at the Detective Information Desk at 1-877-LAWFULL (1-877-529-3855).
