Officers found a white, two-door sedan abandoned and unoccupied after it crashed into a home on Chadwick. Both the car and home were on fire.

Based on the preliminary investigation, the car had been hit by several rounds of gunfire, appeared to have fled the scene, striking several mailboxes before it hit the house and caught on fire, according to a press release.
