Twenty to 30 shots were fired at a local restaurant early Wednesday morning, witnesses said.

University of Arizona police responded to Jack-in-the-Box, 934 E. Speedway Blvd., after a motorist stopped an officer to report the incident.

It is unknown if anyone was injured or if there was any damage.

University police assisted Tucson police at the scene and located a witness who said she knew one of the people who shot at the restaurant. Tucson police stopped a suspect vehicle at North Park Avenue and East Speedway Boulevard, and the witness was able to positively identify one of the suspects.

Tucson police, however, were forced to respond to two other shots fired calls in the city and did not take the suspect into custody, according to University police reports.

A new $3,088 Intel computer that had not even been removed from its shipping box was stolen from the Nugent building at 1212 E. University Blvd.

When police arrived, the vehicle's trunk was open, the rear right window was shattered and all four doors were unlocked.
