Teen charged with road rage serial shootings released from jail

The suspect in multiple road rage incidents in Orange County was released from jail on $3,550 bond.

Investigators say the 19-year-old, who they described as a ‘threat’, would sit in his car, roll down his window and start shooting.

Emanuel Bullard has been arrested for four separate shootings. They say he’s been shooting cars all over Orange County since late December. Deputies say you can see the gun firing out the window in surveillance video captured during an incident.

They say an anonymous tip led them to find Bullard.

According to an arrest report, the tip arrived and led deputies to Bonneville Drive where they found the damaged Mercedes. While executing the warrant, deputies say Bullard fled into the woods behind the residence. He ended up surrendering.
