Crescent City police are looking for a man who fired up to five shots from a shotgun into a vehicle in the 700 block of C Street shortly early Monday morning.
At 12:35 a.m., police received a 911 call from a woman who said she heard multiple gunshots outside her home on C Street.
When officers arrived, they located a vehicle that appeared to have been shot multiple times in the engine compartment. Officers also found several empty shotgun shells on the ground.
Police Chief Richard Griffin said officers believe a man fired five shots using a 12-guage shotgun into the engine of the vehicle.
A witness in the area reported seeing a man getting into a white four-door vehicle shortly after hearing the shots fired.
Griffin said there were no injuries related to the incident and no threats were made toward anyone.
“We are looking for residents in the area who may have surveillance cameras that either recorded the incident or the vehicle leaving the area,” Griffin said in a press release.
Anyone who has information about the incident is asked to the call the Crescent City Police Department at 707-464-2133 during regular business hour and the Del Norte Sheriff’s Office dispatch at 707-464-4191 any time.
