HINTON, W.Va. (AP) - Hinton police say gunshots that hit a school, two houses and three vehicles were an act of vandalism, not violence.

Media outlets report that the gunfire early Tuesday morning prompted a lockdown at Summers Middle School as a precaution.

Police Chief Derek Snavely says the shooter targeted windows. He says all evidence indicates that the gunfire was vandalism.

He says a witness told police the shooter was driving a red pickup truck.
