generic police lights

Prince William police are investigating after two young adults told police they were sitting inside their parked vehicle in a Lake Ridge subdivision Wednesday night when someone drove up and started shooting.

Officers were called to the 1900 block of Inglebrook Drive, a residential area near Clipper Drive and Old Bridge Road, at 8:17 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 11, after a 22-year-old man and 21-year-old woman told police they were sitting inside their parked vehicle when the driver of a light-colored BMW approached, slowed down, brandished a firearm and fired multiple rounds, striking their vehicle, according to Officer Renee Carr, spokeswoman for the Prince William County Police Department.

No injuries were reported. The suspect vehicle fled toward Clipper Drive prior to police being contacted. Officers investigating found shell casings in the street near the victims’ vehicle, Carr said in a news release.

The incident “does not appear to be random” and remains under investigation, Carr said in the release.
