BEACHWOOD, NJ – Police in Beachwood are investigating after two cars entered a quiet neighborhood in the borough and the driver of one car fired shots at the other with their gun.

The incident appears to be the culmination of a road rage incident or some other personally directed motive to attack the other driver.

On Monday Beachwood Police Patrol Officers responded to the area of Admiral Avenue and Locker Street for reports of shots fired. Responding officers located several spent shell casings in the roadway and a parked vehicle impacted by a single round.

“A preliminary investigation revealed that this event originated in a neighboring jurisdiction involving two vehicles, a suspect vehicle and a victim vehicle, culminating in the shots fired at the intersection in Beachwood,” the Beachwood Police Department said.

After the incident, both vehicles left the area. There were no reported injuries as a result of this incident.

“At this time, the incident is believed to be isolated, and there is no danger to the community,” the department said in a statement.
