The Pasadena Police Department Monday night received several reports of shots fired in the area of Raymond Avenue and Painter Street, and later found two vehicles that were hit by gunfire. Fortunately, no injuries were reported in the area.

Pasadena Police Lt. Pete Hettema said a police helicopter and officers responded to check the general area of Community Arms where the shots were reported at about 8:56 p.m. but initially found no evidence of any shooting.

Later in the night, at about 9:50 p.m., a resident called about a vehicle hit by gunfire.

“A resident called in to report that his vehicle which was parked in his driveway had been struck by gunfire in the 100 block of Painter Street,” Hettema said. “Officers canvassed the area and located another vehicle that had been struck by gunfire. There were no reported injuries and nobody showed up at a hospital.”

Officers are investigating where the shots could have come from and have not been able to identify a source.

Anyone with information about the incident is advised to call the Pasadena Police Department at (626) 744-450.
