Shots fired into Owensboro home

OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) - Owensboro police are investigating after a gun was fired at a car and two homes Thursday night and they are asking for the public to send in any information.

The first happened just before 5 p..m. on West 10th Street when a car was shot several times.

The second happened about a half-hour later on Hall Road. A home was shot at there.

Another house was hit on West 5th Street around 7:30 p.m.

Police say these cases are usually difficult to solve because there usually are not witnesses to drive-by shootings. They did say the events could be related though.

The homeowner of the 5th Street house told us her granddaughter was in a bedroom when a bullet went straight through her window. Thankfully no one was hurt but everyone was shaken up.

Neighbors say they are very unsettled, especially because many children live and play in the area.

Anyone with information can call OPD at 270-687-8888, or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at 270-687-8484.

Several shots fired into Owensboro home
