A woman's 2016 Toyota Camry was damaged by gunfire after someone shot at her car in the 200 block of Fussell Street Thursday at about 5:50 p.m., according to a police report.

The report said officers were dispatched to the area of North George Street and Fussell Street and discovered the woman's car had been hit by bullets once on scene.

According to the report, the woman did not know who was shooting at her car.

Her car sustained about $730 worth of damage, according to the report.
