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.
