Drive-by Shooting Targets House on South Myrtle Street

On Wednesday, September 14, at 12:43 a.m., the Warren Police Department was dispatched to 421 S. Myrtle St. in reference to a drive-by shooting.  Upon arrival, Cpl. Kendall Rawls spoke to a woman at the home who stated that she was asleep and was awakened by a horn blowing.  She told the officer that she woke a male in the home who went outside to look but did not see anything.  She said that after she laid back down and began watching television, bullets began coming through the windows and walls.  The police report notes that bullets hit the bedroom windows, front windows, and screen door.

Also interviewed by the police was another male in the home at the time of the shooting who stated that he had been asleep on the couch in the living room when he heard dogs barking.  He said that the woman in the home began talking about a horn blowing and shortly afterwards he heard gun fire.

According to the police report, seven bullet holes were discovered, one of which traveled through the exterior wall across the living room and lodged into an AC unit in the living room.  Another lodged into a drawer in the bedroom and one fragmented out on the male occupant's pillow.  Two more bullets were fired into and SUV.

Evidence has been collected at the crime scene and is being investigated.

Anyone with information should contact the Warren Police Department.
