Adam Abu-Amer, 23, of Creve Coeur was charged with shooting at a woman's vehicle while driving on Interstate 64 in Chesterfield.

Chesterfield police said Abu-Amer was inside a vehicle Friday when he opened fire as he pulled next to the woman's vehicle as they drove on I-64.

The woman, who told police she had a previous relationship with Abu-Amer, was uninjured; she pulled over at the Long Road exit to report the shooting.

Authorities said Abu-Amer's gunfire caused six bullet holes to the driver's side and rear panel of the woman's vehicle and a flat tire. 

Based on the woman's description of Abu-Amer's vehicle, other agencies began pursuing it, Chesterfield police said. Abu-Amer then was arrested in Illinois. 

Abu-Amer's bail has been set at $250,000 cash-only, with no 10% allowed, court records say.
