Shots fired at Fredericksburg home


Fredericksburg Police are investigating an incident early Sunday in which multiple shots were fired into a home in the 800 block of Wolfe Street downtown.

No one was injured during the apparent drive-by shooting, which occurred about 1:15 a.m.

City police spokeswoman Natatia Bledsoe said four adults – a mother, her two sons and another woman – were in the home when the shooting erupted. A neighbor called police after hearing the shots and hearing a vehicle speeding away. No description of the vehicle or the shooter was given.

Police were already on the way when one of the residents called and reported that one bullet had come through a window. It was not clear Monday whether any other bullets entered the home.

Bledsoe said police do not have a motive for the shooting. She would not specify how many shots were fired, but said there were more than three.

Anyone with information is asked to call city police at 373-3122.
