Springfield Police Division officers were sent to an apartment complex in the 1900 block of East High Street at about 1:35 a.m. today on a report of someone shooting at one of the apartments.

Officers found several shell casings near one of the apartments and also found bullet holes through the windows of another nearby apartment.

One of the victims was in an upstairs bedroom when the shooting occurred and didn’t know why anyone would shoot at the apartments.

Another witness told police she heard gunshots and then saw an older white Honda leaving the area. Another witness also saw a white Honda enter the complex with its lights off and a few minutes later, gunfire erupted, he said. No injuries were reported, the report said.

About 15 minutes later, officers responded to another shots fired call in the 1900 block of Michigan Avenue. Officers found two vehicles had been damaged and multiple shell casings remained on the street, the report said.
