Shots were fired into a house on Northside early this morning, according to Columbus Police Chief Fred Shelton.
Shelton said officers were called to the 1500 block of 22nd Street North about 2:30 for a report of shots fired into a house. When they arrived they found casings on the ground, but no sign of a shooter or shooters.
“People were home at the time, but nobody was hurt,” Shelton said.
Shelton couldn’t say how many shooters were involved or whether they were in a car or on foot, but said that he hoped video footage would help sort that out.
“The shooting happened in an area where we just installed a camera,” he said. “We’re hoping to find those details out (from the video.)”
Shelton told The Dispatch he did not yet have enough information to go on to say whether this shooting was tied to previous incidents where suspects shot into a house on Poplar Street.
Shelton asked anyone with information on the case to call Golden Triangle Crime Stoppers at 800-530-7151 or use the P3 Tips smartphone app. Tips are anonymous, and there is a cash reward if they result in an arrest.
