Washington police are investigating a new round of vehicle break-ins in the city.
Detectives were questioning a suspect Friday morning.
Between late Wednesday night and early Thursday morning, someone went through nine parked vehicles and in some cases stole various items, police said.
Police said about 6 a.m. Thursday, a woman reported hearing what she thought was a gunshot that broke out a window on her car, but when they investigated, police found a brick had been used to break the window, according to a report.

The other cars were all unlocked, police said. In some cases the vehicles were entered but nothing was stolen.
