DETROIT (AP) - Detroit's police chief says that someone fired a shotgun at a car parked outside the home of state Sen. Virgil Smith.

Chief James Craig tells The Detroit News that no one was hurt in the shooting, which happened about 1 a.m. Sunday next to Smith's home on Detroit's north side.
Craig declines comment on who fired the shots, saying it's "still an ongoing investigation." He says the shooter fired at least twice, striking the 2015 Mercedes-Benz.

The Associated Press left messages Sunday seeking comment from Dennis Denno, chief of staff for the Democratic legislator.

Police investigators searched the house Sunday afternoon and left carrying a black plastic bag with a long object.
