A Pasadena garage door business was riddled with gunfire early Saturday but no injuries were reported, authorities said.

The shooting was believed to have taken place about 3 a.m. at Tilt A Door, in the 200 block of North Vinedo Avenue, Pasadena police Lt. Anthony Burgess said. But it wasn’t formally reported until the owner discovered damage to his business about 11 a.m.

The owner discovered several bullet holes in the business, along with numerous spent bullet casings in front of his store, Burgess said.

Upon interviewing area residents, several told officers they heard apparent gunfire about 3 a.m, the lieutenant said. But the shots were not reported to police at the time.

No suspect description was available.

Police continued seeking clues, including checking area surveillance cameras for useful footage.
