5800 block Dorsett Dr.


 A 64-year-old Dorsett Dr. homeowner was seated on his couch yesterday afternoon when the sounds of gunfire erupted outside of his house. He was initially frightened to look out the window, but did stand up for a look. He spotted an older tan colored GM car heading east. He and several of his neighbors made several 911 calls. Officers arrived to find seven shell casings, from two different guns, in the roadway. One witness believed the gunfire was between two cars both of which drove quickly from the area.
