MUNSTER — A bullet hole to a parked vehicle was found after a man was reportedly approached and followed by a person outside a tobacco store before a shot rang out, police said.

A man told police he heard what sounded like a gunshot while being followed by another person at 1:49 p.m. Sunday as he was turning onto Beverly Place from an alley between Forest Avenue and State Line Road, according to Munster police.

The two first encountered each other earlier outside the Cheap Tobacco shop at 15 Ridge Road in Munster.

The man then drove away and was headed north down an alley, all the while being followed closely by the suspect.

As the man was turning onto Beverly Place, he saw the Jeep stop and heard what he thought sounded like a gunshot. The suspect then left the scene, police said.
