Bartlett police are investigating reports of shots fired at the intersection of Route 59 and Army Trail Road in which they believe a particular vehicle was targeted.

No injuries were reported in the shooting, which was reported at about 10 a.m., Bartlett police Cmdr. Michael McGuigan said.


"We believe this was a very specific shooting," McGuigan added. "This was not a random shooting."

Route 59 was closed temporarily between Army Trail Road and Smith Road, but it was reopened at 11:45 a.m. as the investigation continued there.

McGuigan said no further details were immediately available, including any description of a shooter.
