FISHERS — A home and a vehicle were struck by bullets but no one was wounded when someone opened fire in a residential neighborhood late Monday, police say.

Police are still searching for suspects in the shooting, according to a Tuesday news release from the Fishers Police Department.

Officers began their investigation after they responded at about 11:13 p.m. to the Pleasant View neighborhood for a report of shots fired. This is near the intersection of East 131st Street and Promise Road.

Once arrived to discover the damages caused by stray bullets in the 10900 block of Veon Drive.

Jeremy Himmelright, the homeowner of where the shooting took place, said he and his wife had been in bed when the shooting occurred.

Police then spoke with the owners of the home that had been struck and determined no one inside had been hit, according to the release.

"I threw my wife and I to the floor until the gunshots stopped." Himmelright said.

His two children had also been in the home.

"I know that the Fisher's finest is going to be on this, you know, it's a small town so that, you know they're gonna put all their force behind it," Himmelright said. "It's a safe town."

Investigators believe whoever fired the shots fled the area in a vehicle, of which police haven't released a description.

"There is no known ongoing threat to the public," the release states.

Officials haven't provided any additional information.

Fishers police asked anyone with more information to contact Fishers Police Detective Sgt. Robbie Ruble at 317-595-3319. Police also asked anyone who lives in that area to contact the department's non-emergency line at 317-773-1282 if they have security cameras that may have captured the shooting or noticed suspicious activity.
