Manatee deputies looking for two men involved in drive-by shooting

MANATEE -- Deputies are looking for two men possibly involved in a drive-by shooting early Friday, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.

A family was sleeping inside their home in the 800 block of 67th Avenue Drive West at 1:05 a.m. Friday when they heard several shots fired, according to a release.

The victims walked to the front door and found a bullet hole in it, deputies said, and then found two more in a car parked in the driveway and another two in the wall by the front door.

A neighbor who said he also heard the shots told deputies that he'd seen two young males shooting from a white Cadillac.

Deputies gave no other details on possible suspects. There were no injuries.

A similar shooting occurred Wednesday night in the 3700 block of 20th Street East, with bullet holes in a home and no injuries. Deputies had no suspect or vehicle description in that case.
