“(Officers) located shell casings in front of a (home),” a police report says. “Upon further investigation, several apparent bullet holes were located on the front side of the residence.”

Officers spoke with a witness who told them he heard shots at around 2 a.m.

“While hearing these, (he) looked out his front window in time to see one flash from what he believed to be a handgun,” the report says. The witness told police he saw a silver sedan quickly leave the area and head northbound on Clifton Avenue, according to the report.
