West Point Police Department officers are looking into incidents of shots fired at Town Creek Apartments.
Local E911 dispatchers began receiving calls about 10 p.m. Wednesday alleging gunfire in the complex on West Half Mile Road. WPPD officers were dispatched to the scene about 10:40 p.m. near the A and B buildings of the complex in response to another alleged disturbance and gunfire. Dispatchers reportedly told emergency personnel the disturbance centered around a gray pickup truck and a white SUV.
According to a WPPD media release, officers discovered vehicles matching 911 dispatchersâ€™ descriptions upon arrival. Officers observed a gray, GMC Yukon with the driverâ€™s side rear window shattered and what appeared to be a bullet hole near the bottom of the window, according to the report. The vehicle was registered to an unnamed Town Creek resident.
Investigators found no evidence to suggest any injury had occurred at the scene, according to the release.
While residents were reportedly standing outside throughout the complex upon police arrival, witnesses denied hearing gunfire.
Itâ€™s an alleged problem that seems to be recurring, according to West Point Police Chief Tim Brinkley.
