ATLANTA (AP) - Police say 18 vehicles were damaged by bullets in what they described as a gun battle in midtown Atlanta.

WXIA-TV reports (https://on.11alive.com/2cYVPyW ) the shooting started around 11:30 p.m. Thursday at the corner of Crescent Ave. and 12th Street, an area with popular bars and restaurants.

Atlanta police Capt. Cliff Johnson said investigators were having trouble finding good witnesses. But, he said, it appears there was a gun battle involving multiple shooters.

Police found 60 rounds from four different guns, and an AK-47 rifle was found in some bushes near a parking lot.

In addition to damaged vehicles, some buildings were also hit by bullets.

Johnson said no injuries were reported and there were no suspects in custody.
