Neighborhood surveillance video captured one of an estimated three volleys of shots fired in a normally sleepy part of Lafayette early Friday morning.
The gunfire woke neighbors, naturally, and drew police – who were apparently unable to pinpoint the source of the gunfire. There were no reports of injuries.
The shots, fired at regular intervals, were reported at around 3:30 a.m. in the area of Mt. Diablo Boulevard and Acalanes Road. Police searched neighboring tracts for more than an hour, including a section of Glorietta Boulevard, using an aerial drone and officers from adjacent jurisdictions who patrolled the area by car and on foot.
Neighbors said they have heard similar gunfire in the area in recent weeks and this site has been hearing from neighbors in the area who have reported gunfire/”booms”/fireworks or explosions on various nights for almost two years.
