The occupants of a Mercedes Benz that drove into an area where police said shots were fired Thursday night appeared to have been in the wrong place at the wrong time. Now are seeking information as they investigate the incident.
Officers responded to a call in the 1900 block of Wisteria Court at 10:53 p.m., according to Naperville Police Sgt. Gregg Bell. When officers arrived at the location, they learned that occupants of a vehicle involved in the incident had driven to a nearby Naperville Fire Station for help.
“Officers were able to determine that a residence in the area was damaged by projectiles from the offender(s) weapon. No local residents were injured in connection with the shooting,” Bell said in a news release. “At this time it is believed multiple shots were fired at the victim vehicle as it drove in the area of the incident.”
The vehicle caught in the crossfire, a 2006 Mercedes Benz, appeared to have bullet holes, possibly from gunfire, in the chassis as well as the windows, which were broken, Bell said.
The occupants of the vehicle were treated for injuries suffered from broken glass, Bell said. None of the injuries was life threatening.
A nearby home also appeared to have sustained damaged from projectiles from a weapon.
Officers searched the surrounding area but didn't find a suspect. A vehicle suspected in the incident was described as a light color, possibly a silver/blue Pontiac minivan with tinted windows, according to police.
The incident remains under investigation and anyone with information is asked to contact the Naperville Police Investigations Section at 630-420-6726, or call the Crime Stoppers Hotline at 630-420-6006.
