Police seek information on shots fired in Windom

Police are investigating gunshots fired at the 5400 block of Garfield Avenue South.

A homeowner told police of hearing several loud bangs around 3 a.m. Wednesday, May 18, but did not immediately look outside or call police at that time. The homeowner later discovered several bullet holes on their home and a vehicle parked in the driveway.

Officers are providing extra patrol to the area.

Police ask residents to call 911 immediately if they think they hear gunshots. Upon hearing shots, police advise people to stay inside or take cover when outside. If residents spot someone with a gun, police ask for a description of clothing, age, height, gender, build, race, location, vehicle and direction of movement. When officers arrive, the extent of the investigation depends upon the detail of the information received.

Anyone who saw or heard anything related to the incident can contact the 5th Precinct at 673-5437.
