Oro Valley police are asking for the public's help in investigating a drive-by shooting that took place Wednesday, Oct. 19.

About 7:20 p.m., a woman and her two children got into their car after shopping at the Walmart located at 7951 N. Oracle Road. The woman told police that a white male driving what she believed to be a black Volkswagen hatchback cut her off while they were driving through the parking lot.

Both vehicles exited out of the parking lot onto westbound Magee Road. At the intersection of Northern Avenue and Magee, the suspect made an offensive gesture to the victims, according to a press release issued today by Oro Valley police Lt. John Teachout.

The suspect then pulled up alongside the family's car, stopped and fired one round through their car's front windows as they drove past.

No one was seriously injured. There appears to be no connection between the suspect and victim in what appears to be a random act of violence, said Teachout.

Anyone with information related to this crime should call the Oro Valley Police Department at 229-4900, 911 or 88-Crime.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
