SAN FRANCISCO — Slate reports that after Apple and Google employee charter buses in the San Francisco Bay area have reportedly been shot at 20 times, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) has started driving a decoy bus that police hope will lure the shooter.

CHP officials believed the suspect has been shooting a BB gun from another vehicle, which has resulted in damaged windows and dented exteriors. The CHP is getting help from the FBI, and a $10,000 reward has been offered for information that may help lead to the arrest of those responsible.
