Auburn police are looking for a man they say randomly fired on a car full of children Saturday.
No one was hurt, police spokesman Steve Stocker said.
The car, driven by a 40-year-old man, carried friends and family – seven kids between the ages of 10 and 15, Stocker said.
“It appears as if it was totally random,” he said. “That many people in the car, fortunately nobody was hit.”

KIRO-TV reported the group was headed for a Fright Fest event in Federal Way when the shooting happened about 5:30 p.m.
Their car, KIRO said it was an SUV, pulled up to a stop sign at 21st and F streets southeast, and a man standing at the side of the street fired at the vehicle, hitting it four times, Stocker said. The man then got into a car, possibly a blue Honda, and took off.
Investigators did not have a good description of the shooter Monday.
“It's just this random person, walking down the street, shooting at people, and it makes me angry,” the mother of the 10-year-old told KIRO. She asked to remain anonymous out of fear for her safety.
“Had the bullet gone two inches lower, through that window, it could have been a completely different outcome. It would have ripped right through our kids.”
Police asked anyone with information to call the department’s tip line at 253-288-7403.
