MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – Detectives in Rutherford County were working to figure out the circumstances that led to the discovery of two bullet holes in a police officer’s squad car.

At least two rounds hit the vehicle, including one that penetrated the driver’s side door near the police department seal. The other hole was on the passenger side near the door.

The bullets were recovered from the squad car and sent to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation for forensic analysis.
Officials said anytime someone fires upon a police squad car it would be taken very seriously.
There was no word on what charges the suspect or suspects would face if caught.
