JEFFERSON COUNTY, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

The Jefferson County Sheriff's Department is investigating after multiple homes and vehicles were struck by bullets this weekend.

Police say it all happened late Friday or early Saturday morning.

Pastor Darren Web of Charter Baptist Church awoke Saturday morning to find the driver side of his car window.

 "Walking with my coffee and my lunch and there it was a hole in my window," said Pastor Webb.

Webb lives off of Highway T in De Soto. He said no one was injured, but his property wasn't the only one hit by gunfire.

Officers responded to several homes in De Soto and Festus area for reports of damage.

Police said several cars were struck by bullets in the 14000 and 15000 block of Highway T while homes in the 14000 block of Charter Church Road and the 12000 block of Highway TT were damaged by the gunfire.

At one home a bullet passed through the garage door and into the wall inside while a bullet went through the front door of another.

"It's by pure luck that no one was seriously injured," said Sgt. Matt Moore with Jefferson County Sheriff's Department. The Sheriff's Department says they expect more victims to come forward.

News 4 spoke with one homeowner who thought it was a rock that shattered his window.  He later learned it was a bullet and noticed the bullet hole through his car's visor.

"That's scary. You shouldn't have to worry about that around here but obviously there's bullets flying around, people not caring about people's property," said Austin Dollar, one of the victims.

Investigators say there is no connection between any of the victims but they do believe all the shootings were committed by the same person. They are looking for any witnesses or surveillance video.

Anyone with information should contact the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office Detective Bureau at (636) 797-5515.
