Reports claim that a man is in custody after a random shooting resulted in the death of a 24-year-old woman. 

According to NBC New York, the man randomly shot a woman behind the wheel on a New Jersey Highway.

Authorities are investigating whether he is connected to at least two other random shootings in the same county over the past several weeks. Indeed, prosecutors have been looking for what they consider to be a "serial" random shooting, and many believe that they have found their man after this most recent arrest. This connection hasn't yet been confirmed, however.

Authorities are working to confirm the connection between the deadly Thursday night shooting in Freehold and two recent shootings, one of them in Asbury Park and the other in an unknown town. All of the shootings have taken place in Monmouth County. Only one woman to be shot has died from gunshot wounds.

"This is a bad guy," a prosecutor spokesperson said after the arrest was made. "We want him." 

A woman was reportedly driving onto Halls Mills Road when she was shot and killed. A 1-year-old was in the vehicle and the woman's boyfriend was also in the car, but both the boyfriend and the young child remained unharmed. Chopper 4 showed law enforcement and vehicles near the scene on Friday. The investigation is still in its early stages.

According to the New York Post, the woman killed in the shooting has been identified as Sciascia Calhoun. According to public records, Calhoun had a certification as a home health aide.
