Police investigate 2 shooting incidents

LOGANSPORT — The Logansport Police Department is investigating two shooting incidents.

The first occurred shortly after midnight Friday in the 600 block of 13th Street. Neighbors reported hearing gunshots in the area and called 911. When officers arrived, they found a bullet had penetrated a second-floor bedroom window and a second bullet went through the living room window on the first floor.

The second incident occurred shortly before midnight Sunday in the 000 block of B Street. Again, neighbors heard gunshots and called police. Officers found a residence had sustained gunshot damage, with a number of bullets penetrating the first-floor living room area.

No serious injuries were reported during either incident. Police collected evidence from both residences and occupants of both were interviewed. The investigation continues, but police say it’s too early to tell if the incidents are related.

They do believe, however, that the residences involved were specific targets and not the victims of random gunfire.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective First Sgt. DJ Sommers.
