UPDATE: Vehicle shot in Foy lot, unrelated to earlier shooting

The vehicle damaged by a presumed gunshot is unrelated to the shooting on Thursday, April 9, in Lincoln Homes, according to Executive Director of Public Relations and Marketing Bill Persinger.

A vehicle parked in the Foy lot was reported to have broken windows from what appeared to be a gunshot at approximately 1:50 p.m., according to APSU Police.

This vehicle is the only car affected, and the damages are thought to be result of a prior incident, according to Persinger.

Persinger said APSU Police do not believe it was a targeted attack; however, they also do not think the damages were result of a stray bullet.

APSU has concerns over the event because crime in that area has never directly affected campus until now, according to Persinger.

There are no suspects at this time, Persinger said, though students should be concerned as they normally would in an event like this.

Even though Lincoln Homes is in close proximity to APSU, “It’s a city issue,” Persinger said. “We don’t really have control there because [Lincoln Homes] is governmentally funded.”

This is an ongoing story and will be updated accordingly.

Clarksville Police Department is investigating this incident, and anyone with further information is advised to contact the Clarksville PD or APSU Police at 931-221-7786.
