Bullet trajectories could indicate freeway shooter's location


The key to identifying whether the freeway shooter is shooting from a car or standing on a bridge or overpass is the trajectory of the bullets, according to one former police sergeant who spoke to CBS 5 Investigates.

"It starts to narrow down whether we think it's a mobile shooter, or do we think it's someone who is stationary," Kevin Boontjer, a retired Tempe Police sergeant with 24 years in law enforcement, explained.

Boontjer said if he had to speculate, he would say the shooter is likely firing from a moving vehicle.

The answer to whether that's the case will come from the angle at which the bullets are striking the targeted vehicles, something law enforcement investigators likely already know, but are not releasing to the public.
