Fort Pierce police investigate 3 shooting incidents in which no one was hurt

FORT PIERCE — After about a three-week lull in gunfire, shooting erupted again during the weekend, but no one was injured, according to police reports.

Police are looking for suspects.

About 6:40 p.m. Friday, officers heard several shots from a large caliber handgun in the area of 1300 block of Boston Avenue. Several males in the area told investigators that two people were standing near Boston Avenue and shot east toward 12th and 11th streets.

The suspects are thought to have run to a reddish-colored sport utility vehicle that drove south on 14th Avenue.

Twenty-four hours later, a person standing in front of his home in the 1600 block of North 15th Street was fired on by person in the back seat of a car that drove by. The car was last seen heading west on Avenue Q at 6:38 p.m. Saturday. The vehicle is described as being a red Nissan Altima.

Then on Sunday, police investigated a past shooting into a home in the 2500 block of Delaware Avenue. A woman had heard a noise two weeks ago, but it wasn't until Sunday that she found bullet holes in two pots in her kitchen and a bullet was in one of them.

Police also found bullet holes in an outside wall and in a cabinet and living room wall.
