Two or three armed men broke into a vehicle and apartment in Fitchburg Friday night, police said.

Police were originally called to a parking lot in the 2100 block of High Ridge Trail for a shots fired call at about 11 p.m., police said.

Officers found no shots were fired at the scene, but the reported sounds were noises made by the men breaking into a vehicle, police said.

Witnesses told police that two or three men armed with handguns and a shotgun broke into the vehicle then entered an apartment associated with the vehicle, police said.

The men stole several items from the apartment and left the scene on foot heading south, police said.
