November 17, 1992|By Alisa Samuels | Alisa Samuels,Staff Writer

Shots from a pellet gun shattered the windows of three cars as they traveled along Harpers Farm Road Sunday afternoon, Howard County police said.

No one was injured.

Police believe someone may have fired at the vehicles from an overhead walkway between a nearby public high-rise building and the Harpers Choice Village Center. They have no suspects in the shootings.

"It sounds like something juveniles would do, but we obviously do not know for sure," said Sgt. Gary L. Gardner, a county police spokesman.

"At best it could be a distraction to the driver and could cause an accident."

The sergeant said police believe the same person is responsible in each incident.

The shootings occurred as the vehicles traveled west on Cedar Lane in the 5400 block of Harpers Farm Road, Sergeant Gardner said.

The first shooting occurred between about 5:25 p.m. and 6 p.m. when rear windows in two cars were shattered. A short while later, a front window in the third car was shot out, police reported.
