Springfield police are investigating a report of gunfire Christmas Eve on Woodward Avenue.
Law enforcement were called to the 1700 block at around 11:30 p.m. Monday after a woman said she heard gunfire outside her home, according to a Springfield police report.
“(The woman) stated that she was in her home and heard multiple shots come from outside,” the report says. “Upon inspecting the home, officers located several bullet holes going into the home. The southeast facing window was broke and shot out. The front door had a gunshot hole going through the screen door.”
The report says other bullet holes were found around the home.
“There was another round that went through the wall just north of the door that struck a stuffed rocking chair and the bullet fragment came to rest just beside it,” the report says.
The report says officers found eight casings in the intersection of West Singer Street and Woodward Avenue. The casings made a trial starting south on Woodward Avenue leading westbound, the report says.
Springfield police are continuing to investigate the case, the report says.
