Pontiac — Oakland County Sheriff’s deputies are investigating two drive-by shooting incidents that occurred about nine hours apart Monday.

Deputies were called to the 600 block of Lydia Lane on a “gunshots fired” run shortly after noon Monday. The caller reported six to eight gunshots that struck a neighbor’s house.
