AUGUSTA — A city teenager is wanted in connection with a shooting Wednesday night in which a gun was fired at a car while two people were inside, police said.

No one was injured and the victims fled in the car.

Augusta Police Lt. Christopher Massey said warrants have been issued for the 17-year-old, who’s believed to be the shooter. He declined to specify what those warrants charge or identify the teenager because of his age.

The shooting occurred shortly after 8 p.m. as two people sat inside a parked car on Laurel Street, Massey said. The Augusta teen shot once into the car, shattering the driver’s side back window, Massey said.

“We received numerous 911 calls,” Massey said.

Police were at first told that the shooter had fled in a car, so officers were looking for a vehicle, Massey said. But police subsequently learned the shooter had run into a nearby house.

“We went to the house,” Massey said. “We were able to recover a gun, but the suspect was gone.”

Massey said police found bullet fragments inside the car.
