ROCHESTER — Two cars were hit by bullets during a shooting late Monday night, Nov. 21.

At 11:45 p.m. Monday, Rochester police officers were sent to an apartment building in the 2000 block of 41st Street Northwest after multiple reports of gunshots, according to RPD crime prevention and communications coordinator Amanda Grayson.

Two cars were struck by bullets and several shell casings were found near the cars. No injuries were reported.

Witnesses reported seeing a man running from the area, Grayson said. He reportedly jumped a chain link fence and got into a car, which left northbound on 22nd Avenue Northwest. The car is described as a blue or black Nissan or Acura.

Police are still searching for the suspect. Grayson said anyone in the area with surveillance cameras is asked to check the video to see if it captured the incident, the suspect or the vehicle.
