Police were investigating after someone opened fire on a car in which four people were riding early Friday in the fourth incident involving gunfire in a Waco neighborhood in 48 hours.

None of the four was injured, police said.

Authorities do not have a suspect, but they were looking for a silver car.

"We are still investigating all four incidents and looking to see if they are related,” Waco police Officer Garen Bynum said Friday.

“But we do want residents to know we believe them to be isolated incidents and they should not be worried they will be targeted."

Two people were wounded in an exchange of gunfire Wednesday morning at a home on Mountainview Drive near Mountainview Elementary School, and shots have twice been fired at a home in the 3700 block of Ethel Avenue near the old Hillcrest Hospital campus, first on Wednesday and again Thursday night.

Kevin Flewallen lives nearby.

"Last night I was in my kitchen (with) my wife and we heard a round of gunshots so I just told everybody to get in the kitchen because I didn’t want to get shot," he said.

No one was injured although it's believed at least 20 to 30 rounds were fired into the house and cars on the property.

"It's scary. I mean we're planning to move out of here, I mean we don’t want to live in this neighborhood like this,” Flewallen said.
