WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Police say, that with the multiple cars found with shattered windows last night, there have now been more than a 100 vehicles citywide damaged.

Add to that, reports in Eastern Davie County and Western parts of Forsyth County, and it now appears that more than 120 cars have been damaged.

Around 9 p.m., police say they responded to numerous reports of vehicles being vehicles being vandalized in the area of Summit Street and West End Boulevard.

Throughout the evening until midnight, police said they responded to additional reports of vandalized vehicles.

This morning, even more calls came in: 9 cars were found with damaged in the Clemmons and Eastern parts of Davie County.

Many of the reports in Winston-Salem were around the Buena Vista area.

Summit Street, West End, Northwest Boulevard, Marguerite Drive, Kirkless Road, Kester Mill Road, Jonestown Road, and Hinshaw Avenue appeared to be the hardest hit streets.

Several of the vehicles had shattered windows. Police said the damage appeared to be caused by "a BB or pellet-type gun."

One of the targeted vehicles was occupied, but the victims were not injured, police said.

Liz Romano found her window shattered this morning.

"I don't think its funny at all. Please don't do this anymore. This is not a game and you're really messing with people's lives and the economy how it is,  not everyone can afford a new window."

Police said a possible suspect vehicle spotted in the Kester Mill Road incident was described as “a silver or gray KIA Sorenta or a small Lexus SUV-type vehicle.”

Investigators are not sure if whoever is responsible is also responsible for similar incidents reported in the past week, in which a total of 30 vehicle windows were said to be shot.

Anyone with further information is asked to call police or Crimestoppers at 727-2800.
