Shots fired near Cinema Drive on Sunday, Monday nights

No one was injured and no property damage was located.

Somebody fired guns out of cars near Cinema Drive on both Sunday and Monday night, a Juneau Police Department press release says.

The occupants of a silver car fired several rounds near the Chinook Apartments around 11 p.m. on Sunday night, said Lt. Krag Campbell in the press release. The following evening, the occupants of a black minivan also fired several rounds while driving down Cinema Drive before 10 p.m.

Officers were unable to locate any vehicles matching the description, Campbell said. Witnesses said it appeared that the weapons were fired in the air. There are no reports of any casualties or damage at this time, Campbell said.

Campbell said that the JPD was speculating that the incidents were related, based on the back to back timing. The reason for the gunfire is unknown, but it may be to intimidate someone who lives in the area, Campbell said.

If anyone notices any evidence of gunfire, they should call the JPD to make a police report.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact JPD at 907-586-0600. Anonymous tips can be made at www.JuneauCrimeLine.com.
