A 12-year-old boy told Lancaster police he was shot at Wednesday afternoon while walking home on Miller Street.

The boy said he and two other boys were walking between Sycamore Run Apartments and Miller Grove Apartments about 7:20 p.m. when gunshots were fired from a burgundy Ford Crown Victoria, according to a Lancaster Police Department incident report.

The shots came from a back-seat passenger, who appeared to be aiming at the Miller Grove Apartments office building, the boy told police.

After the boys started running toward Sycamore Run Apartments, the shooter began firing at them, the report said.

The boy told police he couldn’t remember how many shots were fired. Nobody was hit.

A witness told police he saw the Crown Victoria pull out of Sycamore Run and turn onto Gooch Street toward Market Street.

He said there were four passengers in the car.

Investigators later found four casings from a .45-caliber handgun on Miller Street, the report said.

There have been no arrests and Capt. Harlean Howard of the Lancaster Police Department said police have no leads.
