A vehicle was shot once at the corner of Bowie Lane and Broad Street Wednesday night, according to authorities.

Police Chief Jody Bradley said Thursday that the shooting occurred around 11 p.m. and there were no injuries. The chief couldn’t supply the make and model of the vehicle or say whether it was occupied.

No one had been charged Thursday, but the chief did say they had leads on a shooter and a driver.

During Tuesday’s City Council meeting, Bradley unveiled plans on how his department will work  to curtail gunfire in Greenwood.

According to the chief, there were 85 reports from the public about shots fired during a time frame that went 90 days back beginning New Year’s Day.

These reports could mean instances such as shots fired at a vehicle,  at a person or in the air, Bradley said.

Of the reported shots fired, 60% occurred within two four-block areas, the chief said.

A “high-crime group,” composed of a couple of police officers, will soon be formed to work 6 p.m. to 2 a.m., five days a week, to approach areas where shots are most likely fired, according to data analyzed by the police, Bradley said.
