Cleveland Heights Police are actively investigating after several drivers reported their windows being shot out on Noble Rd.

One of those drivers was Navona Negron, still shaken up hours later.

Negron said she was on her way home from work around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, stopped at a red light on Quilliams and Noble, when she heard a loud pop.

Then, she heard another and before she knew it, her back windshield shattered.

"My heart was pounding," Negron said. She called 911 and officers responded, but weren't able to determine if it was a bullet or a BB that did the damage.

Damage that Negron knows could have been much worse. Her two kids normally sit in the backseat, now covered in broken glass.

"You need to stop because you could have killed somebody," she said. "Anybody could have gotten hurt. You could have ruined somebody's life just by thinking it's fun."

Cleveland Heights Police Chief Annette Mecklenbeurg said they are actively investigating and asking for the public's help.

Police say there have been six reports to date of car windows being shot out. Most of the suspects have used BB guns and pellet guns to shoot out the windows. One car was pelted by a paintball gun. 

Anyone who has information should contact the Cleveland Heights Police Department at 216-321-1234.
