But, you are a little worried. There have been numerous shooting on this road for months now. But, it will not happen to you. You let out a breath of air, and accept that somehow you are above the possibility of becoming a victim of the highway sniper. Then your window bursts, along with your delusion of safety. You step on the pedal and hope like hell the shooter doesn’t take another shot.
The Shooter was High on Meth
As reported earlier by the San Francisco Chronicle, Michael James Lee was booked by Santa Clara police on the charge of attempted murder. He led them on a nice little chase in his black Dodge Charger. For months, Lee has been taking aim at drivers on the Blossom Hill Road. All shootings took place shortly after midnight. A police officer the Charger sitting in a parking lot within the time frame of the shootings. Earlier reports had pointed toward the possibility that the shooter drove a dark Charger. When police approached, Lee took off, but was eventually caught after his car was disabled. The police found meth and contraband, but no gun. After a search warrant was signed, the police found a pistol at his residence and bullets that matched the casings the police had found at past shooting scenes. A motive wasn’t apparent; the shooter, like most of the highway snipers out there, chose his victims at random. Of Course, being high on meth probably played a roll in his choice to shoot people in their cars. Then again, most meth heads don’t go around shooting at cars.

Its great this dirt bag was caught, but he is a part of a growing trend among would be murderers. Where there is one, there will be more.

The only other option is to give up and leave your life in the hands chance.
