UTICA, N.Y. - Utica Police are investigating a shots fired incident that occurred on Thursday night. Police said that multiple shots were fired in front of a home on Jefferson Ave.
Two of the bullets fired went into the home striking inches above a bed where children were sleeping. They were not harmed.
Police are investigating why there were no 911 calls after the shots were fired.
Stephanie Zayas said one of her kids woke her Thursday night complaining that they felt glass all over them. Neither the parents, the children, or the surrounding neighbors heard the shots.
"We learned through the investigation that no calls were made during the overnight hours when this occurred. At some point during this morning, a homeowner arrived at his residence and located what he believed to be bullet holes in the home as well as shell casings outside. We're in the process now of conducting a canvas of the neighborhood including anyone at that residence to determine why no calls were made if any shots were heard," said Utica Police Sgt. Mike Curley.
Multiple shell casings were discovered by neighbors when they woke up on Friday morning.
Neighbors tell NEWSChannel 2 that the neighborhood is mostly quiet and incidents like these never happen.
