Police are looking for the person who fired three shots into an ATM machine at a local bank this past weekend.

Russellville Police Chief Chris Hargett said the incident occurred at the ATM machine at Community Spirit Bank in the Foodland shopping center on U.S. 43 in Russellville.

He said the crime happened about 2:30 a.m. Saturday.
