MILFORD, Mass. – Police officers responded to a report of gun shots directed at a car on Water Street on Tuesday night, but there are no suspects and no motive, according to the Milford Police Department.
At 11 p.m., police received a report of gunshots at 36 Water St., said Milford Police Lt. James Falvey. Officers responded and saw people outside that address, pointing to the rear of a brown Nissan Maxima, police said. The officers observed bullet holes in the rear of the vehicle and secured the crime scene, Falvey said.
The officers interviewed people to try to determine what happened. One individual said she heard four to five shots about 11 p.m., according to Falvey. After hearing shots, she looked out the window and saw a charcoal-colored Toyota Camry speed around the Water Street corner to Oliver Street with the car’s lights off, Falvey said. The operator then turned its lights on, and the witness believed there were two males in the car, according to Falvey.
In addition, police interviewed the owner of the vehicle, who said he heard six gunshots about 11 p.m., Falvey said. The individual looked outside his kitchen door, saw a dark-colored, small car stopped in front of his driveway and observed gunfire coming from inside the vehicle, according to Falvey. The vehicle then accelerated, heading to Route 140, Falvey said.
The Massachusetts State Police Crime Scene services was called, and the car was towed to the police station for further processing, Falvey said. The car is unavailable for photos to the media because the department is waiting for state police to do more processing, police said.
Falvey said the department has found no motive for the shooting, and the case remains under investigation.
