Law enforcement report

¢ The Douglas County Sheriff's Office responded to a report Sunday of gunshots being fired into a vehicle on Kansas Highway 10. The report was not made public until Friday.

According to a report, deputies received a call at 3:18 a.m. Sunday that someone had fired into another vehicle on K-10 east of Lawrence.

They made contact at milepost 9 with a 21-year-old Kansas City, Mo., man in the vehicle, a 2005 Monte Carlo, and saw several bullet holes in the car. No one was injured, said Lt. Kari Wempe, a sheriff's spokeswoman. Wempe said a person who reported it had been on K-10 in a different vehicle but that the person left before speaking with deputies.

The man and a passenger told deputies they didn't know the reason for the shooting, and no suspect has been identified.

Agreed, I think instead of asking someone to close it down... we just burn it down?
