Fear Grips Oklahoma As Numerous Vehicles Shot At On Highway
[UPDATE] – Tulsa County deputies took two 14 year old boys into custody on Wednesday. The boys confessed to “target practice.”
“Cars being shot at, or trucks being shot at, that’s very disconcerting,” said nearby resident Michael Cox.
On Highway 75 North between 106th Street North and Highway 20 in Tulsa County, Oklahoma, numerous Wal-Mart Trucks have reported being struck by bullets while heading to the Wal-Mart distribution center near Ochelata or Wal-Mart location in Bartlesville.
Sunday night, 5 trucks were struck by bullets between 8:30pm and 11:30pm. Monday night, Oklahoma News On 6 received tips that even more trucks have been hit.
In addition to the Wal-Mart trucks, a passenger car and a Swift trucking rig were hit on Sunday night. Thus far police have been unable to declare a motive although it doesn’t appear it is an intentional targeting of any one company.
However, more and more truckers are becoming concerned traveling that stretch of roadway as bullets are routinely found in trucks.
The shooting are being investigated as assaults with a deadly weapon and will be charged as such.
