No arrests, no injuries, as vehicle shooting probe continues

(KAIR)--No arrests yet as the investigation into the shooting of a vehicle, in Atchison, moves forward.

Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson told MSC News no one was hurt, despite the vehicle incurring gunshots, Wednesday afternoon. "It was around 3:40 on Wednesday afternoon when we responded to a shots fired call in the north-central area of the city. We learned that a number of shots had been fired from a vehicle at another vehicle in the 1000 block of North 7th. As were were responding and examining the scene in the 1000 block of North 7th, we received a call that one of the two vehicles involved in that incident was now in the area of U.S. 73 and Raven Hill Road, in a parking lot. We did locate the vehicle and five occupants in the vehicle. It had been struck by these bullets in the 1000 block of North 7th."

Wilson said the connection between the group that was shot at, and the alleged shooter, isn't immediately known, but it's believed the two sides knew each other. "We do believe that there had been previous confrontations between the individuals in both vehicles. We believe that both vehicles were in the area of the 1000 block of North 7th when one vehicle pulled up beside the other vehicle. The passenger in the suspect vehicle displayed a handgun, reached out of the vehicle and fired 6 to 8 shots at the other vehicle. We know that at least 6 shots hit the vehicle."

A rumor began circulating following the shooting that the motive might be a high school rivalry, but Wilson ruled that out.

"It is not a high school rivalry. There's five victims in the vehicle, they range in age, 17 through 22. There were three males. two females."

Wilson said the continuing investigation is focused not only on the Wednesday afternoon shooting, but on previous incidents involving the two sides.
