VERO LAKE ESTATES – The Indian River County Sheriff’s Office is still investigating a drive-by shooting that took place on December 30, 2018, in Vero Lake Estates.

At approximately 11:30 pm, deputies were dispatched to a home located at the 8400 block of 104th Avenue after receiving several calls about “shots being fired” in the area.

Deputies found bullet holes in several vehicles that were parked outside, as well as the home. The homeowner said everyone was asleep when they heard the shots and woke up. He did not see anyone or any vehicle in the area when he walked outside after the shooting. No one in the home was injured or hit by the bullets.

“I located 14 spent casings on the road in front of the residence. Two vehicles including the house had bullet holes,” the deputy said.

One vehicle had been shot two times on the front bumper and the front windshield. Another vehicle had a gunshot in the driver’s front window and the front fender.

“The house appeared to have been hit several times due to the marking on the walls and the door,” the deputy added.

The Indian River County Sheriff’s Office is still investigating this case. Anyone with information about the incident should call the Indian River County Sheriff’s Department.
