A Michigan City man's vehicle  became a target for some late night hunters with bad aim.

Police were called out to the 8000 North block of 600 west when a report came in that a man's vehicle had been vandalized.

According to the police report, the man had gone out to move his 1995 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 when he noticed it was not driving properly.

The man was checking the passenger side of his truck when he saw what appeared to be multiple dime sized dents and scratches scattered all over the fender, door and that he also had a tire shot out.

Police say they observed the damage and determined that it was probably caused by someone firing a shotgun at the truck; however, the owner of the vehicle told them he had not heard a gunshot the night before or seen any suspicious activity.

The damage to the vehicle is estimated to be around $1,000 and police currently have no suspects.
