The Oakland County Sheriff's Office is investigating following a drive-by shooting that targeted a Pontiac home, but isn't getting much cooperation from the victim.

The shots were fired just before 11 p.m. Monday, police said, outside of a home on the 800 block of Robinwood, which is south of North Perry.

Police responded to a report of shots fired and were told that the vehicle in question is a light-colored SUV. It may be a Toyota. It was "battered," victims told police, and had a loud exhaust, and no one inside the home could identify the shooter.

No one inside the home was hurt, but as police canvassed the area they noticed a silver Nissan SUV, with three men inside, driving on the 100 block of Ridgemont. 

The SUV parked in front of an apartment building, and as police approached, the men walked inside the building. Police made contact with the men, and the three men came outside. The three men denied knowing anything about the shooting, and the leaseholder of the apartment refused to allow police to search it.

Two of the three men, a 23-year-old man, and a 25-year-old man, both Pontiac residents, were arrested on unrelated warrants and are at Oakland County Jail. The third man had no warrants and was released at the scene.

There were four people inside the home on Robinwood at the time of the shooting: 21, 23 and 59-year-old women, and a 61-year-old man. None were hit.
