Warren police investigate consecutive gunfire on same street

WARREN, Ohio (WYTV) – Police are investigating gunfire at two homes on West Park Avenue on consecutive nights.

The first shooting was reported at 2:40 a.m. Sunday. A woman told police shots were fired at her home, and she and another adult in the home told police they did not have enemies and had no idea of who may have shot at the home.

Police found six bullet holes in the front wall of the home and a home next door was also struck twice. Those residents told police that they had no idea who may have fired the shots either, according to a Warren City Police report.

Two .223 REM caliber shell casings were found on the road and taken as evidence, according to the report.

The next day, at 1:49 a.m., police were again called to the area when shots were fired at a home next door. Officers recovered 18 of the same caliber shell casings as the previous night and six .45 caliber shell casings, police said.

Police said the home had several bullet holes along the siding. The occupants, both teenagers, told police they were staying at the home while renovating it for an acquaintance. They told police that they did not see any vehicles leaving the area at the time of the shooting.

Police did not say whether the shootings are believed to be related. No one was hurt in either incident.
