CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Cleveland police are searching for a mystery gunman who's been targeting a minority-owned business.

The employees and owner of "Pretty Girl Trucking" are scared, angry and losing money, while the person who is shooting at them is still out there.

The trucking company works on road projects and say as they haul material to and from different sites, they're watching their backs and their front ends, because they don't know if or when they'll be shot at again.

"We came in on a Monday morning and none of the trucks would start because the radiators were all shot out," Julie Cunningham.

In the past two months, five of her trucks were shot at and hit while drivers were on the road. One at 82 and station in Columbia Station, two on Rt. 57 in Medina, and another Tuesday, on 42 and Fenn Rd.

"It scares you to death."

The company is taking steps to protect themselves. They've installed security cameras and they have 24 hour security walking or driving around the property.

The company is also offering a $10 thousand reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction.

If you know who the shooter might be, call CRIME STOPPERS AT 216-252-7463.
