Sheriff's deputies say the car targeted in the shooting was hit at least 13 times by the suspect

An initial investigation led to broken glass and several shell casings on I-49.

Law enforcement believes the suspect was driving a black, early-to-mid 2000, four-door Ford Focus during the shooting, which has been called "random" and "unprovoked."

The Cass County Sheriff's Office is asking for anyone who may have been driving on I-49 between midnight and 1 a.m. Sept. 7 to call their office at 816-380-5200.
