BENNINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - A day after Bennington Police say a man’s car was shot on the highway, police are hearing reports of more gunfire for the third day in a row.

Timothy Keeler sent in a photo to WCAX News. He says he was driving Monday when he heard gunshots but he didn’t see anyone shooting.

He later found a bullet hole in his car.

Bennington Police say an officer investigating a separate incident near Route 279 Tuesday heard shots nearby. Multiple crews responded but did not find anything.

They say the car hit Monday is the only evidence they have found of an actual shot.

A press release from police said a similar incident happened two years ago, but police are now clarifying that, saying that a similar incident happened this past Sunday in a neighboring New York town. That means gunfire was heard in the same general area three days in a row.
