The gun attack happened around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday in the eastbound lanes of the 91 Freeway near Norwalk Boulevard close to Cerritos.

Someone shot out the windows of at least two vehicles on the 405 Freeway in Orange County on Tuesday - and authorities are looking into multiple similar incidents over the past week.



The victim says he was actually shot at in the same area a few months ago. He described what he went through during Wednesday night's incident.

"I was driving eastbound 91 Freeway, and I seen a flash and right after the flash, I heard the window crack throughout the windshield. That's how I noticed I got shot at, so I pulled over to the shoulder and called 911," said Michael Hernandez. "I hope they catch this guy, 'cause he's shooting at innocent people and hopefully nobody gets hurt."

Two other shootings were reported on local roads Wednesday.

One driver was shot at on the 605 Freeway near Imperial Highway, and another was targeted in East Los Angeles.

Meanwhile, authorities are searching for a person who shot and shattered the windows of at least two vehicles on the 91 Freeway in the Corona-Riverside area Tuesday.
