JACKSON, Tenn. — Possible gunfire damaged a vehicle owned by a Jackson nonprofit organization. Jackson police snapped pictures of a hole in a pickup truck at the Regional Inter-Faith Association on Wednesday. “We just noticed that there was a bullet hole in the truck, but we have no idea when it happened or where it happened,” RIFA Executive Director Lisa Tillman said. Police said officers could not find a bullet and believe the damage did not happen overnight or anytime recently. Tillman said she believes it is a random act. “Random crazy things happen all the time,” she said. Tillman said Robinson Toyota employees donated the truck to RIFA. They use it to pick up food that helps feed people in the area. “We only had it for about a year and a half, and so obviously we want to take care of it and keep it looking nice,” Tillman said. RIFA said no one got hurt and that nobody was driving the vehicle when it happened. “People shooting up the truck — don’t make no sense,” Michael Rogers, who works nearby, said. Tillman said they typically keep the truck parked in a warehouse and have never had an incident like this before. “This is a safe location,” she said. “It’s well lit. There are always people here.” RIFA said they are not sure how much repairs will cost but that they plan to file a claim with the insurance company. Police said they have not made any arrests. If you have any information about the damage, call Jackson police at 731-425-8400 or Crime Stoppers at 731-424-TIPS (8477).
