As a man drove through a neighborhood in Fountain just after midnight Friday, he told police a man began shooting at him.
Fountain police confirm that the victim's vehicle was hit by bullets several times. The victim was uninjured.
The victim told officers the suspect was standing in the driveway of 11 Arrow H Road, and started firing at him as his car passed by.
Police investigated the home, and were able to collect enough evidence to indicate that shots had indeed been fired from the residence.
