LAKE CITY, Fla. (WCJB) - Shots rang out in four neighborhoods in Lake City on Thursday evening into Friday morning.

Lake City Police officers say the first shots were reported around 6:00 p.m. Thursday on Southeast Putnam Street. A witness says a man with a handgun fired several shots out of the window of a red Nissan car as it drove down the street.

Officers say while searching for evidence, they found a home with a security camera facing the street. The owner did not allow officers to review the footage.
