Sgt. Josh Doggrell said a man called police at 5:45 p.m. saying he heard eight shots fired near his apartment on the 300 block of Elm Street. Doggrell said the man told police he did not see anyone firing the gunshots and was unsure of the direction the shots came from. Doggrell said the caller later noticed a bullet hole in the screen door of his apartment.
“The officers who responded to the call spoke with a neighbor who also said she heard the shots,” Doggrell said.
No injuries were reported, Doggrell said. Police searched the area for bullets and shell casings, but recovered none.
The sergeant said police had no suspects and were still investigating the incident. A suspect would likely face felony charges of discharging a firearm into an occupied building, according to a police report.
