LEWISTON, Maine – Police released few details Sunday about a drive-by shooting that occurred Saturday night on Marble Street that left one person with minor injuries.

Shots rang out shortly before 8:30 p.m. Saturday on Marble Street directly behind the former Pettingill Elementary School, a usually quiet residential neighborhood nestled between College Street and Central Avenue.

Several shots were fired at the home of Tom and Jamie Bolduc, who told the Sun Journal Saturday night that shots were also fired at the home of their daughter, who lives down the street.

Lt. Mark Watson of the Lewiston Police Department confirmed Sunday that a second home in the area sustained damage during the incident but declined to release the address or name of the homeowner. He wouldn’t say whether shots were fired at that residence or if there was some other type of damage.

Watson also confirmed reports that one person sustained minor injuries but declined to release the victim’s name due to the ongoing investigation.

Jamie Bolduc told the Sun Journal that three white males chased a black male from her daughter’s home after shots were fired there first. She said the men chased the suspect to her home, where more shots were fired. Neither she nor her husband were home at the time.Watson said that authorities believe three or four shots actually hit the home.

Watson said that he could not comment on whether police have any suspects. No arrests had been made as of Sunday night.
