Someone fired a gun numerous times into an occupied home in Prince George County on Saturday, four days after the same thing happened at the house.

Prince George County police said they received a report of shots fired at 3:37 a.m. Saturday and found that numerous rounds had been fired into a house in the 12000 block of Johnson Road. On Tuesday night, police responded to the same home just before 11 p.m. and recovered about 11 casings from shots that had been fired into the house. People were inside the home both nights, but no injuries were reported either time.

On Saturday, a neighbor came outside and saw the suspect’s vehicle in the road, police said. The neighbor fired several shots at the vehicle, described as a black pickup truck, prompting the driver to quickly flee the area. Police said it’s unclear whether the vehicle or anyone inside it was struck by the gunfire.

Prince George detectives did not have a suspect identified as of Saturday afternoon and are asking anyone with information to contact the Prince George Police Department at (804) 733-2773 or Crime Solvers at (804) 733-2777 or through the P3 Tips app.
