Shell casings show where the shooting started. Police say the driver tried to get away before striking a nearby light pole and shearing it in half. 

Crime scene investigators searched for clues late into the night. 

No arrests have yet been made and a weapon was not recovered. 

Neighbors say the two boys were raised by their uncle after their mother died several years ago.

The family home is not far from the scene.
