Two people were injured by flying glass but were not hit by a bullet in a shooting reported at Manhattan Apartments in Woodland on Sunday night, authorities said.
The shooting was reported at about 11:03 p.m. Sunday at the apartments between South Rutgers Avenue and North Purdue Avenue, the Oak Ridge Police Department said. The ORPD had received reports of gunfire in the area.
“Officers determined shots were fired into a vehicle with two people inside,” the ORPD said. “Neither person was struck by a bullet, but both were injured by flying glass debris from the shattered car window. The two victims were treated on the scene by Anderson County EMS.”
The suspect is believed to have fled the area immediately after firing the shots, the ORPD said. When they finished a preliminary investigation, police filed warrants for the suspect for the following charges: two counts of attempted first-degree murder, two counts of aggravated assault, and two counts of reckless endangerment.
“The victims were interviewed at the scene and released,” the ORPD said. “No names will be released at this time. The investigation is open and ongoing; no further information will be provided.”
More information will be added as it becomes available.
