Officials are looking for a man who fired a gun at a car carrying a baby in Paso Robles on Monday night, the California Highway Patrol said.

The incident happened about 9:40 p.m. on Highway 46 west of Jardine Road, the CHP said. A 2002 Kia was traveling eastbound on the highway when a bullet struck the passenger side of the car.

According to the CHP, the bullet was fired from the driver’s side of a black Ford Mustang convertible. The driver of the Mustang is described as a white man with buzzed hair, about 6 feet, 3 inches, and of medium build.

Authorities were able to recover a bullet from the Kia, the CHP said, but a search of the area did not produce a suspect or other information.

The driver of the Kia and his three passengers, including an infant, were not injured.
