Shooting investigated on 22nd Street
Falls police investigating a report of shots fired located an apparent shooting scene at a 22nd Street home early Tuesday morning.
Falls cops were originally called to the area of 20th Street and Woodlawn Avenue about 3 a.m. Tuesday for a report of shots fired. A responding officer immediately checked the 1000 block of 22nd Street because they had been out there earlier in the night to deal with a house party.
The officer was met by two residents of the home who said they had heard 5 to 6 gunshots and saw a man running east on Woodlawn but denied knowing anything else. An officer, though, noticed a bullet hole in the front window of the home. Checking inside, officers found where the bullet had entered a wall, right above a couch.
The occupants of the home provided little information to police but did give the name of person who might be responsible.
Officers then checked the home across the street to see if there had been return gun fire and found a hole in a window there, but could not find the projectile. The matter is being investigated.
