— Police continue to investigate an incident that happened around midnight Wednesday.

The incident started with an assault at a home in the 1900 block of Garden Drive.


"We know two people got into a physical altercation at this address, alcohol was involved then they left the house," said Lt. Tim Hiers of the detective bureau.


About 45 minutes later, one of the men involved in the altercation returned to the house, with at least two other unidentified people, Hiers said.


Police also discovered a broken window in a vehicle and a couple broken house windows, he said.


"In one of the house windows, it appears someone shoved in a shotgun and shot birdshot up into the ceiling. But nobody saw a gun," Hiers said.


Police believe no one was hurt since no one sought medical attention at a local hospital, he said.


No arrests have been made and police today are trying to identify all parties involved in the assault, damage to property and recklessly endangering safety incident, Hiers said.
