A drive-by shooting at a Casper gas station on Sunday shattered one of the business’ glass doors, police said Tuesday.

No injuries were reported.

The shooting occurred about 4 a.m. at Kum & Go, 1455 S. McKinley St., said Lt. Mike Thompson of the Casper Police Department.

A clerk at the station notified police after hearing six to seven gunshots from outside the business. The clerk was hiding in the bathroom when police arrived, Thompson said.

Police discovered deformed bullets on the floor inside the gas station. One .40-caliber casing was found in the intersection of 15th Street and McKinley Street.

“We suspect it was probably shot from a vehicle,” Thompson said.

The glass window of the left entry door was shattered during the incident and has been boarded up.

Police have not made any arrests.

Preliminary reports pointed toward a customer who had visited the gas station several hours earlier and became angry when the clerk could not sell him cigarettes without presenting a driver’s license. That customer has been ruled out as a suspect, Thompson said.
