Police are still looking for people connected to a shooting that damaged a parked car in the 700 block of Olivewood Drive early Friday morning.

Several shots were fired at around 1 a.m. in the quiet residential neighborhood. When officers arrived on the scene they found a 2004 Toyota Scion that had a bullet hole in the rear window and several bullet casings near the intersection of Olivewood Drive and Sandalwood Court, police said.

A suspect fled the scene in a dark-colored sedan before police arrived, police said.
