Investigators believe people in two vehicles were shooting at each other. No injuries have been reported but a vehicle and two apartments were struck by bullets.

Matthew Maio, a resident of the complex, said he and his wife had just gotten their infant son asleep when they heard what they thought was fireworks. Whne they looked out the rear of their apartment, they saw two cars with gunfire coming from both.

“The first thought was to make sure that my wife and child were safe,” he said. “I’m a little freaked out. A little nervous.”

There are no suspects at this time, police say. Anyone with any information is asked to call 911 or 941-316-1199.
