DENVER (CNN) – Two mysterious shootings on a Colorado highway are connected, according to police.
In the first attack, a woman was shot in the neck while she was driving.
A month later, a cyclist was killed.
Two random shootings, authorities now say are linked.
And fears in Colorado there’s a sniper on the loose.
“Be vigilant. Be aware of your surroundings. See what’s going on,” Chief John Michaels, Windsor Police, said.
The warning came Friday, as police revealed there’s new evidence connecting the fatal shooting of 48-year-old John Jacoby to the shooting of 20-year-old Cori Romero.
Police won’t say how they’re linked, but they say the victims appear arbitrary.
“There’s no indication the two victims knew each other at all,” Michaels said.
On May 18, in the town of Windsor, Jacoby was shot twice and killed while riding his bike.
Five miles away and about a month earlier, Romero was shot in the neck while driving.
“911, what’s the address of your emergency?” the operator asked.
“Um, I’m on the highway right now and somebody just hit me and I’m bleeding from my neck, and I’m scared,” Romero said.
The FBI are involved, offering a $10,000 reward.
So far, no suspect has been identified.
Adding to the mystery, on that very same highway, at least two dozen reports of shattered car windows.
“I know there have been a lot of broken windows on I-25, car windows. Those have not been linked to this event. It’s not that they’ve been discounted either,” Michaels said.
The news has this rural town on edge.
