TYNGSBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - Police in the town of Tyngsborough are urging caution after two vehicles were damaged by what investigators believe was stray gunfire from hunters.

WBZ-TV reports a shotgun slug was found in the frame of a car after its window was found shattered Saturday and that a van was reportedly damaged by a bullet on Sunday. No injuries were reported.

Police say it appears the damage was caused by stray shots from nearby hunters but have not made any arrests.

Tyngsboro Police Chief Richard Howe said it’s “extremely fortunate that nobody was hurt” and urged all hunters to take proper safety measures.

The town’s police are still investigating the incidents with help from the Massachusetts Environmental Police.
