    Yesterday, 08:44 PM Adams County Shooting
    Unknown subject shooting at mutiple vehicles traveling in the area of Wisconsin 73 and County Highway F in Bancroft. Adams County, State Patrol and Wisconsin Rapids agencies en route.Yesterday, 08:44 PM

    Yesterday, 08:45 PM Two vehicles have been confirmed hit. More shots fired calls coming from area residents.

    Yesterday, 08:47 PM Waushara county also responding. Highway 73 being shutdown from both directions. 5 mile parameter being established until more information can be determined. Appears to be random shooting at this time.

    This type of thing did happen a few weeks ago on Hwy 70 out near the western end of the state, past Hayward, I think. Can't find anything from any news outlets.

    I can understand some people being driven to that point of wanting to randomly wanting to shoot at people, especially is they have tried to get a commercial loan in the last year.

    it is some scary crap, and yet another reason why we law abiding citizens should be able to carry a firearm in our vehicle in a ready to fire condition.

    This part really doesn't sound like bb gun fire, unless it was from persons whose vehicles were hit. Coming from area residents sounds like they were hearing shots being fired?

    I agree, but a pistol is useless if someone is sitting 200 yards off the highway shooting at vehicles. Your best defense is to simply floor it.
