BRADENTON – Deputies are investigating two incidents of shots fired overnight Christmas Eve.

At about 3am Tuesday, someone fired shots at DaVinci's Club on Cortez Road. Bullets hit the building, but no one got hurt.

The same story at a Circle K on 1st Street West. Shots were fired, the building was struck, but no one hurt.

Manatee County deputies do not know who or why, and say they appear to be random.

Deputies want to find a black, older model four door car that may have been involved. If you have information that can help, they ask you to call Manatee County Crime Stoppers at 866-634-TIPS.
