School Rd. (at Vera Court)


 On Wednesday night, a caller thought she heard gunshots in the area of School Rd. and Vera Court. Responding officers could find no evidence at the time. Yesterday, the MPD made contact with a man who been parked on School Rd. at the time shots were heard. He told police a gunman had fired at his car, and that one round had struck a door. Neither he nor his three passengers were injured and he did not immediately report the gun violence. Using his information, officers went to the spot where he had been parked and recovered two shell casings. Detectives with the MPD's Violent Crimes Unit believe this was a targeted shooting.
