Shots Fired Near Campus

The Harrisonburg Police Department says a report came in about shots being fired on the 1,300 block of Devon Lane early Sunday morning.

A timely notification was sent out to students at James Madison University Monday that says witnesses saw a man with a dark-colored handgun that he fired into the air several times.

Witnesses also say the incident may be related to an altercation that took place at a residence on the same black just before the shots were fired.

The vehicles were seen leaving the scene of the incident shortly before police arrived. One has been described as a beige Chevy Trailblazer with aftermarket wheels and dark-tinted windows. The other has been described as a dark colored Honda Accord also with darkly tinted windows.
