Kansas City police continue to investigate a shooting spree that has injured three people in the past month.
Officials are looking into as many as 20 incidents of vehicles that were shot or shot at in the Kansas City area since March 8.
Police Chief Tye Grant said the number is not exact because the investigation is fluid, "very dynamic, it's changing every hour."
He said some cases have been marked off as not involved, but police are getting new ones in.
No one has been killed, but one victim was shot at by a masked individual from another car.
Police reported that several of the shootings are linked.
“The investigation has determined that those incidents have occurred either by the same people or around the same time,” Grant told NBCNews.
Earlier this week KCPD issued canine units to help with the investigation.
"There are no resources that have not been made available to us in order to figure out who is committing these crimes," Grant said.
A local news organization reported that the incidents occurred between 5:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. local time.
Officers are increasing their presence near Grandview Triangle, Blue Springs, Lee's Summit, and Leawood — the areas of the shootings. Motorists should remain vigilant and immediately report any suspicious activity, police said.
No additional shootings have been reported since Sunday. Police have no suspects in custody, but have issued a $7,000 reward for any information leading to an arrest in the case.
