VIDEO: Gunmen shoot at PA house; resident unsure of motive

Imagine sitting in your home surrounded by those close to you when gunshots aimed at your house suddenly ring out.

Add the fact the shooting took place during daylight hours and you have no idea why you were targeted.

That’s what Port Arthur Police Department investigators say took place July 18 at 6:45 p.m. in front of a house on Lewis Drive.

Det. Sadie Guedry told Port Arthur Newsmedia on Wednesday the only thing shot was the house.

“There were people home, but they were not hurt when it happened,” Guedry said. “The complainant has no clue what it could be in reference to.”

PAPD detectives released video this week that authorities say identifies the vehicle linked to the drive-by shooting.

Because of the vehicle’s distance from the targeted house and the victim’s surprise to the shooting, police do not have any descriptive suspect information to report.

The video shows the vehicle that drove by and shot at a house.

Authorities are asking anyone with information to contact Det. Eric Thomason at 409-983-8643 or Eric.Thomason@PortArthurTx.gov.

If you would like to remain anonymous, report a tip to Southeast Texas Crime Stoppers at 409-833-TIPS (8477).

You will not be asked a name and could be eligible for a cash reward up to $1,000.
