A vehicle was found with a smashed window and bullet holes in the passenger side of the vehicle. No damage was observed to other vehicles. Additionally, no blood was found and no injuries to any individuals were reported.

The other incident reported on Monday at around 12:12 a.m., officers responded to Monmouth Boulevard and West Brooks Street for a “shots fired” call. Officers were advised that the caller saw someone shoot a single shot and heard several more shots.

The report says that several calls came in and one caller advised, “they heard someone say they were going to kill another person.”

A single shell casing was located in the 600-block of West Brooks.

No obvious property damage was seen, according to the report.
