ST. GEORGE — What appeared to be approximately 10 bullet holes were found in a home and a vehicle in the Painted Desert neighborhood at 1630 E. 2450 S. in St. George early Saturday morning.
St. George Police responded to the neighborhood upon receiving a 2:35 a.m. call from a resident who thought they heard gun shots, Sgt. Sam Despain said. The informant reported that the gun shots were heard about 30 minutes prior to calling the police, he said.
The damage from what appeared to be bullet holes was confined to one residence and a vehicle, Despain said. “There were people at the home, however no one was injured,” he said.
Single-family homes in the area share a common address, the particular unit number affected is being withheld as the investigation is ongoing.
There was a passenger car seen in the area, Despain said, but no detailed description was given. That and the call coming in 30 minutes after shots were heard leaves the Police Department with limited information to work from.
“At this time there is very little to go on,” Despain said, “and the incident is under investigation.”
