Redding Police have located a second vehicle that was fired at by an unidentified gunman during the early hours of Tuesday morning.

Officers say four people were driving southbound in a Honda Accord on Churn Creek Road, making a right turn onto Cypress Avenue when a pedestrian standing at the corner of the intersection fired several shots from a handgun at the car.

One of the bullets hit the back of the Honda and struck 19-year-old Jessica Newman in the back. Newman is currently in stable condition.

Police are now saying one of the passengers in the Honda Accord may have thrown a milk shake at the pedestrian, provoking him to fire at the car.

On the evening of Tuesday June 10, a second victim came forward, police say 22-year-old Redding resident Nolan Barnhart was driving east on Cypress Avenue at the time of the shooting. Barnhart told investigators he heard a loud noise and thought he had hit something. He then saw the story on the news and discovered a bullet hole in his car.

Police say the suspect is a white male adult, about 5'10" with a stocky build. At the time of the shooting he was wearing black cargo shorts, a dark grey shirt and a black baseball cap.

Anyone with information should call the Redding Police Department Investigations Division at (530) 225-4214.
