KSP investigating several reports of shots fired at cars in Pulaski County

By  | 

PULASKI COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - Kentucky State Police say they received several calls from drivers reporting suspicious activity.

The calls came from drivers traveling on Highway 80 near the Pulaski and Laurel County line.

Drivers near the Rockcastle River bridge on the Hal Rogers Parkway said they saw tree limbs and branches in the road. Their cars ended up being damaged by what the drivers thought was gunfire.

State Police say they have not found conclusive evidence of gunfire, but three cars did have evidence of damage. One vehicle had a smashed window; two others had dents.

"I’ve got a Durango too that’s had something done to the windshield. It looks like a rock, not like a BB,” said Gary Taylor.

Taylor says someone used something to shoot two of his vehicles. He lives within a few miles of the county line where the three cars were shot Friday morning.

“Kids these days you never know what they might do. They do it to get a thrill, or to prove to their friends that they can do this or that,” Taylor said.

State Police are not sure who committed this crime, or why. Troopers will be conducting extra patrols in that area.

Anyone with information concerning this incident is asked to contact Post 11 at 606-878-6622 or 1-800-222-5555.
