MINA – A delivery van was struck by suspected gunfire Thursday morning, Chautauqua County sheriff’s officials reported.

Deputies were investigating a 9:15 a.m. report that involved a van traveling west on Interstate 86 that was “struck by a projectile possibly fired from a rifle from the north side of the road,” sheriff’s officials said.

The incident occurred about three miles east of the Findley Lake exit.

Authorities suspect someone hunting in the area may have fired the shot that struck the van. No injuries were reported.

Anyone with information on hunters in that area is asked to contact sheriff’s officials at 753-2131.
