driven by Martin Esquivel was hit by three bullets while traveling east on interstate IO. The Arnot ing occurred near Ban ning, about 90 miles east of Ix»s Angeles.
No one wa* injured on that occasion but the sniper continued east on interstate IO and apparently didn’t miss again.
The first shooting death occurred at Indio, about 35 miles east of Banning, when the I sniper got off the highway long enough to fatally wound Jose Romero. 50, of Pasadena, at the first intersection. Then he re-’ turned to the highway.
Here deputies lost track of the. time .sequence but they said Billy Gene Tegarden, 41. of Belle Gardens, was killed in his pickup truck about 15 miles east of Indio. Further east, about 15 miles east of Desert City, the sniper fatally wounded Herman Edge, 25, of Long Beach.
Presley said two truck drivers witnessed the shooting of Edge !and began trailing the sniper.' attempting unsuccessfully at i one point to force him off the' road. They used a citizen’s band radio in the truck to get the license and description of the vehicle to authorities.
Deputies at first said Hicks was stopped at a roadblock but I later they said he simply had been pulled over by one of the; many law enforcement officers; who were called out to look for i the sniper.
Among those shot at after the third death were Harold Sumpter, 51, and his 17-year-old! son Mark, of Whittier. The father was hit in the cheek by a bullet fragment and the son was struck in the eye, seriously injuring him. deputies said. After treatment at a hospital in Blythe, he was taken to an eye specialist in Phoenix.
I Two other persons were hospitalized with gun shot wounds and were reported in satisfactory condition.
The second person fired at during the spree was Reginald Garcia, 21, of Anaheim. He was approaching Indio around 3:15 ia.m., enroute to the Colorado river with his wife, her brother and the brother's girlfriend. when the sniper pulled up and fired inside.
“I heard some type of a pop-pop sound.” Garcia told a reporter later. “We thought it was some kind of a rock hitting the bottom of the car . . . Then he (the sniper) let go with a big bang. The glass shattered and the impact was so hard that glass hit my wife's side, and she was on the passenger side.”
Garcia suffered minor cuts on his neck from the glass. His wife was not injured.
Stanley, Carey, 21. of Indio, who also was hit by flying glass when his car window was shot out, said later, “I just feel (shook up.” He declined to discuss the incident at the request of authorities.

stop him in Chicago. He was more confident that police in Los Angeles would catch him when he stepped off the flight during a lay-over.
The mother received the first hint that something was wrong when a friend who works at the school called at 2 p.m. to ask why Jimmy was absent. This was hours behind the schedule Jimmy figured on.
The parents did the usual things that parents do when a child disappears including contacting police.
At 8 p.m. the mother discovered her charge card missing from her purse.
A half-hour later, Jimmy, still in the Los Angeles airport, tried to call a nationwide service for runaway children who want to leave messages. He wanted to relay word that he was all right.
After a trustrating half-hour on the phone, he still wasn’t able to get the number.
Exasperated, Jimmy called the Cedar Rapids police department. A patrolman in Cedar Rapids refused to accept the collect call.
Finally, Jimmy told the operator to charge it to his parents’ phone.
The operator, sensing something was wrong, called the parents at the same time the son was talking with the police department.
Jimmy told the officer to tell his parents he was okay and hung up.
The operator was listening to Jimmy’s call at the same time she had the parents on another line
Against telephone company rules, tin* operator told the parents their son was in Los Angeles Ten minutes later she called back to say that Jimmy had called from a pay phone at the United airlines counter.
Later, when Jimmy was home safe and sound, the father would comment:

erator who made the unauthorized phone call to us.”
At this point the parents were convinced Jimmy was headed for Hawaii.
They called the United security department at the I/>s Angeles airport. Jimmy was not found by the men who searched for him and boarded his flight to the islands.
Attempts to check the passenger list did not show anyone using the family’s name.
The parents were still convinced Jimmy was going to Hawaii because he did not know anyone in Southern California.
They called the airport in Honolulu to alert security. At the same time Jimmy was flying over the ocean, still hoping someone would catch him, personnel on the airplane were going out of their way to make his trip pleasant.
When the plane landed Jimmy boarded a limousine for the ride downtown.
He tried to rent a room in a hotel, but was told that the only room left was a $75-a-night suite.
Jimmy wandered around the hotel area, pausing to sleep in hotel chairs.
A full 24 hours after his mother woke him to start the school year, Jimmy called his parents. It was 2 o.m. in Hawaii and 6 a.m. Tuesday in Cedar Rapids.
Tired and hungry, Jimmy had ruled out renting a room at another hotel. He wanted to
Anamosa Inmate I Gets Married In Reformatory
ANAMOSA (APj — Charlo* Hartman, 18, a resident of the, Iowa Mens reformatory, was married Saturday to Rita Addison, 20, Cedar Rapids, in the i ; prison chapel.
Hartman, charged with break 'mg and entering, had filed a suit against the prison in Linn county district court earlier this jyear after he was denied per mission to marry. He claimed his constitutional rights had been violated.
Hartman, who will be eligible for parole in 12 to 18 months providing he maintains good br havior. was given permission to I marry earlier this month and he subsequently drop|x*d the suit j Prison officials said it was the first marriage at the prison in I five or six years.

Jimmy’s parents are upset about the money spent on the trip. They plan no special punishment, hut they say Jimmy will be made to pay for the trip over a period of time.
As for the short Hawaiian visit, Jimmy said:
“This time I realized all of the things weren’t as pretty as I thought.”
Why did a boy, who his mother says is the tightest with money of all six members of the family run away on an exjx'nsive trip.
Jimmy says he did it to get action on his school problem. He was tired of waiting The trip was planned to dramatize his plight.
