No one was injured when gunshots fired early Sunday hit a car and residence near 12th Street and 13th Avenue, Rock Island.

Officers were called to the area shortly after midnight, and no arrests had been made by Monday afternoon.

Rock Island Deputy Police Chief Jason Foy did not know how many shots were fired, but said it appeared the firearm used was a handgun.

An overnight incident report for the police department listed a 35-year-old female and a 42-year-old female as victims of the incident. Deputy Chief Foy said the women were not injured and are listed because they are the owners of the home and car that were hit.
