---- — VINCENNES, Ind. (AP) — Investigators are seeking the public’s help in finding whoever fired shots over the weekend at the cars and homes of police officers in a southwestern Indiana city.

No injuries were reported from the shootings, but Vincennes Police Chief Dusty Luking says three city and one Knox County officer had bullet damage to their marked squad cars or houses.

Luking tells the Vincennes Sun-Commercial that he doesn’t believe whoever is responsible was targeting the specific officers. The damage was found on Sunday in the city about 50 miles north of Evansville and none of the officers reported hearing the shots fired.

Luking says he hopes someone who heard talk about the shootings will contact his department.
