Gunfire unleashed

Shot fired into Chico residence

A bullet was fired into a Chico residence last weekend, according to a recent press release from the CPD.

Officers responded to a report of a shooting in the area of North Cedar Street and West First Avenue Sunday morning (April 9) just after 2 a.m., and responded to find a large party breaking up. Officers checked the area and found several expended shell casings a block away, near the intersection of Cedar and West Second Avenue. While canvassing the area, police found a bullet hole in a nearby apartment window.

After nobody answered the door, officers entered to look for gunshot victims. No one was home, but they found a bullet had entered through a bedroom window and pierced an interior wall before falling to the dining room floor. Police are still seeking information regarding the incident.
