UPTOWN — An Uptown couple looking for a Marine Drive parking spot with two kids sleeping in the back seat were fired on by a shadowy figure who emerged from between two cars and started shooting.
There was no provocation from the couple, who sped away before checking on the kids in the back. No one was hurt, but the couple's car had a shattered driver's side window and two bullet holes, police said.
The couple — a 30-year-old man and 29-year-old woman — was searching for parking spot at 10 p.m. May 7 near Buttercup Park.
As they circled in the 4900 block of North McCutcheon Terrace, a man wearing a black hooded sweatshirt stepped into the street and began firing at them.
They were westbound on Ainslie turning right onto McCutcheon when the man appeared between two parked vehicles. No words were exchanged between the shooter and the couple in the vehicle before the shots were fired, according to police.
After the vehicle took on gunfire, the father behind the wheel drove through an alley to Sheridan Road where he continued north to the intersection with Argyle Street. There, he checked on the two children who slept through the gunfire. The ages of the children were not disclosed by police.
The couple did not recognize the shooter and had no reason for police as to why they might have been targeted, according to the report.
No one has been arrested in connection with the shooting.
