The lives of three children and two adults were endangered Wednesday on Torch Hill Road when shots were fired into a 2008 Nissan Altima they were traveling in, according to a police report.
Columbus Police said no one was harmed, but the incident caused more than $500 worth of property damage to the headlight and front tire on the passenger side of the vehicle.
Officials have not identified the four men who are allegedly responsible. Detailed descriptions of the individuals were not released.
An officer said he was called to the 3700 block of Victory Drive around 4:45 p.m. Wednesday to meet with a victim about the shooting.
The 31-year-old Columbus driver told authorities that she was headed east on Torch Hill Road, near the intersection of Fort Benning Road, when at least two shots were fired around 4:30 p.m. from a burgundy vehicle headed west on Torch Hill Road. A bullet struck the engine compartment and firewall, according to the officer.
The woman said four unrecognizable men were in the burgundy vehicle, and she doesn't know why they would have fired into her vehicle.
The other individuals in the Nissan Altima were children ages 6, 7 and 9 in addition to a 28-year-old woman.
