Van Buren Police Investigate Drive-By Shooting

VAN BUREN (KFSM) -- Van Buren police officers are investigating a drive-by shooting that happened on Wednesday (June 7),  Detective Jonathan Wear said.

The shooting happened on Ollie Drive in the Flat Rock Neighborhood in Van Buren at about 6:30 p.m.

No one was injured in the shooting.

Wear said police believe the shooting was targeted at a specific residence.

"There were approximately 11 rounds that were shot off that we can confirm at this time," Wear said.

He said police are looking for a red vehicle, possibly a Camaro. The vehicle was described as having a custom grill and exhaust.

"At this point, we don't have a suspect, but we are looking for any information that the public can give us," Wear said. "If somebody was in this area of the Flat Rock neighborhood and happened to see a vehicle leaving at a high rate of speed, that's information we need to know."

Residents said things like this shouldn't happen in their neighborhood.

"I don't feel like we need stuff like that going on here," Zach Wheeler said. "We're civil people. We should all be civil instead of having to worry about people shooting up our houses or killing out kids walking down the street."

If you have any information about this shooting or the vehicle police are looking for, you are urged to call the Van Buren Police Department or the River Valley Crime Stoppers at 79-CRIME.
