From a news release:

The Brookhaven Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying a vehicle used in a shooting Monday night on Green Meadows Lane. The shooting occurred shortly after 9:30 p.m. when a passenger from the suspect vehicle fired shots at a residence on Green Meadows.

Investigators say a silver or gold small passenger car was slowly driving north on Green Meadows Lane when it stopped in the 2600 block of the street. The front-seat passenger fired at least two shots into the residence which was occupied.

The vehicle then sped away as a neighbor chased after it on foot. Police say the driver stopped the vehicle and fired at least one shot at the witness. The vehicle fled the area at a high rate of speed.

No injuries were reported.

Investigators say a nearby residence with surveillance cameras yielded an image of a vehicle they believe was used in the shooting.

Police believe that this was either a random act or the suspect intended to target another location and mistakenly fired shots into this house.

Anyone with information on this shooting or the vehicle shown is asked to contact the Brookhaven Police Department at 404-637-0600 or their tip line at 404-637-0636.

Anonymous tips may also be made through Crime Stoppers Atlanta by calling 404-577-TIPS (8477) or online at www.crimestoppersatlanta.org.
