Police in Arizona have finally made some progress in its search for the person responsible for 11 shootings along a stretch of highway in Phoenix. Officials announced on Friday that they are questioning one person about the shootings, but that doesn't mean drivers can breathe easy quite yet.

For the past two weeks, people traveling along Interstate 10 has driven with the knowledge that their car could get hit by a bullet or another object. Only one person, a 13-year-old girl, has been hurt so far, but there have been some close calls, and police struggled to get basic information to help them look for suspects.

On Friday, police arrested a woman and a man in a white Chevy Tahoe, and though it have released the woman, the man is still in custody. Unlike other shootings that have frightened the public in recent months, this series of incidents has unfolded over the course of two weeks on an eight-mile section of road, leaving residents in a state of constant unease about when and where the next bullet would hit.

"What I say 'domestic terrorism,' I don't know what else you would call it," Col. Frank Milstead, director of Arizona's Department of Public Safety said on Wednesday, according to ABC News. "When you're, you know, inflicting terror on a community, what else is it? These are bad people trying to do harm to good people."
