A teenager accused in a series of road rage shootings in Orange County appeared before a judge again on Thursday.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office says Emanuel Bullard attacked another inmate during a jailhouse brawl. The victim’s injuries are so bad that he might lose vision in one of his eyes.

"What he showed me that day was a nice loving son. He didn’t have no anger issues. He didn’t seem upset with nothing like that and that’s why I was shocked to see two days later after Christmas was his first charge."

During his court appearance on Thursday, victims described their alleged encounters with Bullard. His father also spoke, describing him as someone who always thinks of others first. 

The judge decided to hold Bullard on pre-trial detention on the aggravated assault charges. 

Bullard is in jail on charges stemming from five road rage incidents, which were caught on camera where he is accused of shooting into occupied cars. Bullard is being held on no bond for the 5th road rage incident.

Deputies are asking anyone else who may have experienced an incident like this to come forward.
