The man said he decided to follow the white SUV, and continued his pursuit even after someone inside the vehicle held a pistol out the window and shot the gun several times in the air near the intersection of Moffett Boulevard and Middlefield Road. The man said he followed the SUV onto Highway 101 and stayed with it as it exited on Matilda Avenue in Sunnyvale. Thompson said the man decided to leave the SUV and whoever was inside alone after they ended up facing each other in an empty parking lot.
Thompson said that the story was strange, but noted that police did find six .45-caliber shell casings near the intersection of Moffett Boulevard and Middlefield Road, where the man said he saw the gun fired.
Police are currently trying to locate surveillance video that might help with the case. Anyone with information about the alleged crime may call 650-903-6344 to make an anonymous tip to the Mountain VIew Police Department.
