Cities have been plagued by gun violence for years and have left police and investigators baffled as to the means to prevent and stop the violence. A common form of intimidation and gun violence used by criminals has been drive-by shootings. Drive-by shootings allow the assailant to leave the scene quickly as well as to prevent the identification of the shooter by possible eye witnesses. Investigators only hope of solving crimes linked to drive-by shootings is to identify the vehicle used and to begin questioning persons connected with the vehicle.
