GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Police are investigating after shots were fired into a Guilford County ambulance Sunday night.

Chris Wilson, with Guilford County Emergency Services, said paramedics responded to a call for chest pain in the 1600 block of Woodbriar Avenue.

Shortly after the patient was secured, two shots were fired, shattering the rear window of the ambulance.

No one was hurt and the patient was taken in a separate ambulance to the hospital.

"We really don't know if this was intentional towards EMS, the patient or just a random act," Wilson said. "We see violence against first responders, fire, police, EMS across the nation and it kind of really hits home. We really don't know what the circumstances were involving this particular instance, but it certainly makes us aware that this could happen right here in Greensboro."
