The Andalusia Police Department is seeking additional information in the investigation of a drive-by shooting that occurred at about 10 Friday night, April 3 on Packer Avenue

Chief Paul Hudson said the department received reports of shots fired at about 10. An investigation determined that several shots were fired, including one that struck a vehicle and another that went into a house and hit a sofa on which a woman was seated. There also was a child in the house at the time the shots were fired.

Police believe the suspect or suspects were driving a blue vehicle, possibly a Cadillac, Hudson said.

“Anyone who has information about this is asked to call the department and ask for someone in Investigations,” Hudson said. “We need to get this stopped before an innocent person is injured or killed.”

Anyone with information can contact the APD at 222-1155 or Crime Stoppers at 334-215-STOP (7867). All Crime Stoppers tipsters are eligible for a cash reward of up to $5,000 when their tip lead to an arrest.
