received report that four gunshots had been fired on the corner of High and North streets on Sunday night, but despite combing the area were unable to find any physical evidence corroborating the report.
Sergeant Tom Goggin told Patch that the department was initially alerted, around midnight, to a loud argument on the corner between five and eight men, and then received a second call reporting gunshots at the same location.
“When we arrived, there was nobody on the scene. They had dispersed,” Goggin said.
He added that a subsequent search of the area was unproductive.
“We weren’t able to recover any casings, or any evidence that shots had been fired…There was no blood.”
Police stayed in the area and patrolled around the house in front of which the argument took place—“We believe there were people inside the house, they just weren’t answering the door,” Goggin said—but the rest of the night was uneventful.
“Something happened,” Goggin said, “we just don’t know what it was.”
Though police acknowledge the corner has a history of crime, they say it has been quiet for the last three or four years.
