It was then when police say a tan-colored Jeep Grand Cherokee was driving along W. Chester St. in Shenandoah when 11 shots were fired from the vehicle. Police indicate that multiple people may have been in the Jeep at the time.

The shots were fired into a Ford Explorer that was parked in front of a home along W. Chester St. Rounds from a .45-caliber handgun and a 9mm handgun were fired at the Explorer, police say.

The Jeep from which the shots were fired apparently has a bumper sticker on its rear that reads, “SILLY BOYS JEEPS ARE FOR GIRLS.”

Police say the Jeep in question is from between 2005-2010. The Explorer was unoccupied at the time of the incident.
