The shooting at a 24-hour Jack in the Box located in the 5600 block of 30th Street, right off the 60 Freeway, was reported at 11:37 p.m., according to the Riverside County Sheriff's Department.

A shift manager for the restaurant told CBSLA that she and other employees were working when they heard the restaurant window glass shatter. They stepped outside to find that the windows of four of the employees' cars had been shattered by either BBs or pellets.

"We didn't see no one, but we started checking our cars...and our cars were shattered," Jack in the Box manager Diana Alvazar said Wednesday.

No one was hurt. The Jack in the Box was temporarily closed, the manager said.

Meanwhile, at around 11 p.m., a vehicle sustained a broken window in a shooting on the eastbound 91 Freeway at Main Street in Corona, California Highway Patrol confirmed. No one was hurt.

At around the same time, a vehicle was also shot at on the 605 Freeway in the City of Industry. The projectile left a hole in his door handle.

At least 30 freeway shootings in L.A., Orange and Riverside counties have been reported since May 4, with the vast majority occurring on the 91 Freeway. All the shooting appear to involve either BB or pellet guns.

"They're happening at different times, we cannot make any determination of whether this is someone acting alone, or whether it's a coordinated effort," CHP Officer John DeMatteo told CBSLA. "That's all under investigation right now."

No arrests have been made. CHP is investigating.
