Hollister police investigate drive-by shooting

Hollister police were investigating a rare drive-by shooting on Farragot Drive.

According to the HPD:

Police seek help investigating a report of a Hollister home shot at by unknown suspects who fled in a vehicle.

On Feb. 23 at approximately 10:30 p.m., police officers responded to the 1500 block of Farragot Drive on a report of a shooting. Police arrived and found several spent casings and discovered the home and a couple cars had been shot.

There were several people in the home at the time of the shooting including two children. Luckily, no one in the home was injured.

Witnesses told police a grey sedan was seen in the area several times before returning and shooting at the house. The suspect or suspects fled the scene right after the shooting.

The Hollister Police Department has contacted several possible witnesses and is currently trying to obtain any home surveillance video to assist in identifying the suspect or suspects in this case.

The initial investigation did not reveal any gang ties or obvious reason for the shooting into this home. It is possible the shooter attacked the wrong house or was retaliating against someone who no longer lives in this house.

Anyone with information about the suspect’s identity is asked to call Officer Pompa at the Hollister Police Department at 636-4330. Those wishing to remain anonymous can call the WeTip hotline at 800-87-CRIME. Information provided to WeTip may qualify for a reward.
