Some drivers are on edge after hearing a report of a random car possibly being struck by a bullet on 390. That's why police shut down a portion of 390 for hours Wednesday. Many drivers were late because of 390 being shut down.

Police say their investigation is done at 390 near Route 104 and police say they didn't find any significant evidence.

On Wednesday morning, traffic was backed up and cars had to get off the highway. Many drivers wondering what had happened. Investigators walked slowly up and a down the West Ridge road overpass. They were looking for evidence of could have been a random shooting Monday evening.

Casey Voelkl, Greece Police, said, “It's just a report so it didn't necessarily come to our attention immediately that that was the possible incident that occurred, but due to the information that it was possibly a bullet we made arrangement to have other agencies help us in the search out here.”

The FBI was also on the case, searching for clues.

A man was driving alone Monday night during rush hour when he said his car was hit, possibly more than once by what could have been bullets. His window shattered and there was reportedly damage to his car.  Police are not releasing the driver's name, but, we're told he was not injured. Investigators say they waited until Wednesday to scour the area to avoid rush hour and search in daylight.

Residents say they'll take a little traffic congestion if it means local authorities are being thorough.

Crystal Yohman, Greece resident, said, “It's a huge deal so at least they're doing something about it and that's what they should be doing so. I wouldn't say I’m concerned about it, I’m more relieved that they are taking it seriously.”

This is still an ongoing investigation, even though authorities say they didn't find anything Wednesday.
