KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

There have been 12 confirmed shootings along metro highways and streets over a one-month period.

Here is a look at when and where each of them happened.

The first reported shooting police are possibly linking to the 13 happened March 8 at 11:40 p.m.

A Cadillac traveling southbound on Interstate 435 near Interstate 470 was shot with bullets hitting its hood and windshield.

The highways were quiet for 10 days until a bullet flew through a Blue Springs man's car and hit him the leg.

He was on westbound I-70 near Woods Chapel Road at 8:25 p.m.

Just 10 minutes later, another report of a highway shooting at I-470 and Colbern Road in Lee's Summit.

Eleven days later at 1 p.m., a car was hit on Ward Parkway near Pembroke Hill.

An hour later, a car was hit in Leawood at I-435 and State Line Road.

Two days later, a car was shot on eastbound I-470 near U.S. Highway 71.

The shootings picked up again in April.

On April 2, a vehicle was hit at 5:30 p.m. while exiting eastbound on I-470 to the U.S. Highway 71 south ramp.

The next night at 9:05 p.m., another car hit on northbound Holmes Road near 109th Street.

There were two shootings April 4 - one at 5:30 p.m. at I-470 and I-435 and four hours later at I-435 and I-49.

Saturday afternoon, two more shootings were reported. One at 2:48 p.m. on eastbound I-70 west of Interstate 35 and at 5:44 p.m. at Bannister Road and northbound I-435.

The last shooting police are looking at was Sunday April 6 back at the location where it all started at I-470 and I-435.

Of the three drivers hit, one was a Blue Springs man who was on I-435 near I-470. He was shot in the lower leg.

His daughter talked only to KCTV5 News and says she fears for her family and the community.

"We don't know if they are doing it until they kill someone or doing it for fun. We want to know why,"she said.

On April 7 police announced a suspected serial shooter was targeting drivers on metro highways and most happened at the Three Trails Crossing where Highway 71, I-435, I-470 and I-49 meet. Other shootings happened in Blue Springs, Lee's Summit and Leawood.

The FBI and ATF were brought in along with special dogs trained to sniff out ballistics.

CrimeStoppers, with the help of the FBI and ATF, upped the reward for information leading to an arrest in the shootings.

The original award was $2,000, but it was last up to $10,000.

Ten days after police announced the serial shootings, they surrounded a home in Grandview and took a man into custody.
