Police are looking for information after a bullet hit a vehicle last week in west suburban Aurora.

A 25-year-old woman was driving westbound on Lawndale Avenue at 12:55 p.m. on Friday when she turned southbound onto Lake Street, according to a statement from Aurora police. As she completed the turn, someone in a silver, four-door hatchback fired a gunshot that struck her car.

The woman saw two men inside the hatchback but could not provide descriptions, police said.

Her 29-year-old boyfriend was riding with her at the time of the shooting, but neither was injured, police said.

The damage was estimated at about $300.

Anyone with information was asked to call investigators at (630) 256-5500 or Aurora Area Crime Stoppers at (630) 892-1000.
