LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Lafayette police are investigating after an SUV was found shot up, and a home hit with a bullet nearby. 

According to Sgt. Matt Gard, neighbors reported shots were fired around 8:40 p.m. Monday in the 2800 block of South Street. When police arrived, they found a 2004 Chevy Trailblazer with nine bullet holes in an alley. The owner of the truck told police he had no idea why it was shot at, according to Gard.

Police also said a bullet hit a window at a home across South Street. In total, Gard said 11 casings were found. 

Neighbors reported a white or silver SUV leaving the scene after the shots were fired. Police said they have not found that vehicle.
