Heather House told Polk County officials that she was driving on Highway 22 near Highway 99 when she was cut off by another driver around 4:45 p.m. Her 9-year-old daughter was with her at the time, she told officials.

The car — a Honda or a similar car with tinted windows — drove up next to her and a man in the passenger seat shot out her windows. A man with a black beard was driving.

House said the gunfire just missed her daughter.

Michael Sullivan told KOIN 6 News he was at Libery and Commercial when a man drove up alongside him, showed his gun and then started firing into his truck.

Both incidents happened in the late afternoon Friday.

Police did not find any bullets in either vehicle. The weapon may have been a pellet gun. Both drivers said the shooter was dark-skinned, possibly African-American, driving a white or silver Honda with Oregon plates.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Salem Police.
