Investigators seek information on shots fired report on Buena Vista Road

No one was hurt as suspect fired five bullets into a detached garage

The San Benito County Sheriff's Office is seeking information on reports of shots fired into a garage on Buena Vista Road earlier this week.

At approximately 6:45 p.m. on Jan. 18, deputies were dispatched to reports of shots fired in the 900 block of Buena Vista. When they arrived, they discovered that a small, black sedan was seen driving in the area and two witnesses reported seeing a subject fire what appeared to be a handgun from inside the car toward a house.

According to Capt. Eric Taylor, inspection of the scene discovered what appeared to be five, small-caliber bullet holes in the metal roll-up door of a detached garage. He said no people were hit or injured and there was no further information about the incident.

The department encourages anyone who saw the suspect vehicle — possibly a Honda — in the area or who has further information to contact detectives at 636-4080.
