Police seek info in possible shooting

AMHERST – Police are looking for a car that may have been involved in a shooting in the parking lot of the Pond Parish Town Forest Monday evening.

Two people were in a parked vehicle when its rear window was shot out at about 6 p.m. by what police say was probably a small caliber firearm. The vehicle might be a silver Volkswagen, Passat, Jetta or similar make, last seen traveling along Pond Parish Road toward Baboosic Lake, officials said.

Police told news outlets they had not yet determined a motive, but that it’s possible it could have been an accident.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Amherst Police Department at 603-673-4900. Police also are looking for video footage from residents who might have surveillance cameras that capture traffic images along those roads or nearby intersecting roads.
