Five vehicles were shot at as they were driven north on Wixom Road from south of Pontiac Trail to an area near Charms Road around 2:15 p.m. yesterday, Thursday, Oct. 18, marking the second shooting incident in the city in as many days.
Wixom police say the shootings on Thursday resulted in no injuries. There are no known suspects in the shootings, which occurred within a 2- to 3-minute time span. In addition, the make and model of the vehicle used during the shootings is unknown.
The incident remains under investigation.
This comes two days after a pair of 911 callers reported that they heard gunshots in the area of N. Wixom and Loon Lake roads around 7:15 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 16.
One of the callers said he thought he heard a bullet passing by his head as he was taking out his garbage. The other caller said he was driving north on N. Wixom Road when a suspect vehicle passed by him traveling southbound, according to a Wixom Police Department press release.
That caller’s vehicle sustained damage to its front driver-side tire as a result of being shot at, police said. They believe the suspect was shooting a pistol out the driver-side window of the vehicle, which was described as a dark sports car with blue-tinted headlamp covers. One witness told police the vehicle may be a Ford Mustang based on the style and pattern of the turn signals.
There were no reported injuries in the Oct. 16 incident.
