Shots fired at 2nd and James

On December 18th at about 3:10 A.M., officers were dispatched to the area of James Street and 2nd Avenue  to investigate a report of shots fired. The investigation at the scene revealed that no one was apparently injured during the incident. At least nine, and possibly as many as twenty shots, had been fired.  Four businesses on the block had their windows and facades damaged by bullet strikes. The investigating officers recovered spent casings of two different calibers, as well as bullet fragments at the scene.  No weapons were recovered.   
The complainants, a man and woman in their 20s, reported that they were standing near the intersection of 2nd and James when a black vehicle, possibly a VW Passat, drove by and an unidentified suspect fired rounds out of the vehicle’s window.  Officers responding to the area were not able to locate the vehicle.  The  complainants provided very limited information about themselves, and were not forthcoming about any possible motivation behind the incident. 
Gang Unit detectives responded to the scene and interviewed the complainants .
