Bullets hit cars, house
Someone fired at least four gunshots outside a residence in the area of 2050 N. 15th St. early Saturday, according to the Grand Junction Police Department.
At 8 a.m. Saturday, a person reported that a vehicle in a driveway at the residence had a hole through an exterior side mirror and that at least one bullet struck another vehicle in the driveway. Part of a bullet hit a corner of the residence as well, according to Grand Junction police Sgt. Jim Creasy, and four shell casings were found outside the residence.
At least one person was in the residence at the time of the shooting but said he was “a heavy sleeper” and did not hear or see anything suspicious, according to Creasy. The vehicles and the residence were undamaged as of about midnight Friday.
