LINCOLN COUNTY (KMOV.com) -

Authorities are searching for a man who fired shots at a car near Moscow Mills on Tuesday.

A victim told police she was driving on South Chantilly Road near Ethington Road, close to a bridge, when a man walked out to the middle of street started firing shots. Three of those shots hit the victim’s car, but the victim was not injured.

The victim then drove to a convenience store in Old Monroe and called police.

“It’s very concerning, right now we’re considering it a random violent act. We haven’t seen anything like this in the past. We can count on one hand the shootings we have in Lincoln County,” said Lt. Andy Binder with the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office.

Police believe the suspect spray painted the words “heartless monster” and “money” or “death” on the pavement of the bridge.

The suspect is described as six feet tall, wearing a red and black flannel shirt, and police believe he was wearing a mask.
