10) NORTH: Weapons Offense Shots Fired – 1:54 a.m.  Officers responded to Hayes Road after two separate callers reported what they thought to be 5 to 6 gunshots.  The area was searched on foot but officers were unable to locate any shell casings or damaged property.  Officers contacted individuals who were in the process of moving into an area residence.  They advised they had also heard the gunshot sounds this evening.  No type of disturbance was observed in the area at this time.  Investigation will continue during daylight hours.
