Suspicious Incident

On Sunday, January 23, Security and Chatham County Police Department (CCPD) responded to a residence on Landings Way North regarding a resident who found a bullet hole in the windshield of his vehicle. Upon arrival, the resident stated that he heard a gunshot on Friday evening but did not realize his vehicle had been struck. On further examination, officers noticed a single bullet hole in the rear window and a crack in the front windshield where the bullet had impacted. The resident explained that he had experienced an incident of vandalism approximately two months earlier and was unsure if the two incidents were related. CCPD is investigating. There were no additional reports of property damage in the area.

On Wednesday, January 26, Security spoke with a couple neighbors in the area. One neighbor advised that he heard several gunshots between 11:50 p.m. on Friday evening and 12:30 a.m. on Saturday morning. He did not see anything suspicious at the time and did not report the incident. Another neighbor shared videos from their Nest camera, which caught sounds of several shots. There were a total of eight shots fired. At least one of these shots is believed to be linked to the incident above. If anyone has information about this incident, please contact TLA Security or CCPD. As a reminder, discharging of fireworks, firearms, or any type of weapon on common property is prohibited.
