VINCENNES, Ind. (AP) - Investigators have asked for the public’s help in finding who fired shots at the squad cars and homes of police officers in a southwestern Indiana city.

No injuries were reported from the weekend shootings, but Vincennes Police Chief Dusty Luking said three city officers and one Knox County officer had bullet damage to their marked cars or houses.

The damage was discovered Sunday in the city about 50 miles north of Evansville, and none of the officers reported hearing the shots fired, the Vincennes Sun-Commercial reported (https://bit.ly/1rlVM0l ).

In one case, a city officer reported that her marked vehicle had been shot through the driver’s side window, with the bullet going through the passenger-side window and into her home, Luking said.

“I think this person, these people, for whatever reason, were targeting law enforcement in general,” he said. “Not necessarily these specific officers.”

Luking said investigation since the shootings didn’t immediately produce any firm leads.

“I really believe this person or persons, whoever they are, will go bragging about it at some point to someone,” he said. “Maybe doing this will spark some interest in this investigation and help us figure out what happened.”
