You gotta be kidding.. chesterfield twp is investigating this? That's a first... you can hear gunfire all nite long in chesterfield twp.. and people setting off bombs all year round. They do nothing about those.. why are they investigating this one incident? Won't matter.. if it's chesterfield twp police... you can guarantee they won't do a real investigation. It must of been someone real important that reported it for them to have even taken a report of it.
