Road rage gone wrong?

Does not sound like a Muslim terror attack just somebody who lost his cool

One is killed and 12 are injured after a gunman goes on a drive-by shooting spree in Phoenix before being taken into custody

An apparently random drive-by shooting spree in the suburbs northwest of Phoenix has left one person dead, three others shot, and another nine treated for minor injuries. Police in Surprise, Arizona confirmed on Thursday afternoon that the suspected shooter's vehicle had been intercepted by officers, and that a lone suspect was in custody. The chaotic shooting spree spanned across eight separate scenes where shots were fired, as the gunman drove a white SUV through the area firing wildly at strangers, investigators said. 'We don't know the nexus, we don't know what the motive was, we don't know what this person was thinking when they went out and did this,' said Peoria Police Department Sergeant Brandon Sheffert at a press conference. Peoria police say there were at least 13 victims over the course of the hour and a half shooting spree, including four gunshot victims, one of whom died.


The other three gunshot victims are expected to survive. The additional injuries included cuts from broken glass and similar shrapnel injuries, police said. Sgt. Greg Welch told that the shootings appear to have been made 'at random'. Arizona resident Hailee Beaton said her mom was shot by the unnamed suspect. It is not clear what condition her mother is in. At 4pm, she tweeted to warn people to stay off the road as someone was 'driving around and shooting random cars.' 'There's multiple victims, including my mom that have been shot or have had their vehicles shot on Bell Road, Union Hills and the 303.' Source
