GRANDVIEW - Grandview police raced to the area of avenues E and D at about 7:30 p.m. last night, Monday, after fielding a report of shots fired.
Police say when they arrived, a more detailed call came through identifying the home that had been hit, a residence in the 300 block of Avenue D that is a daycare during the day.
Officers observed numerous hits to the outside of the house and also found that a window had been broken and what appeared to be shotgun pellets were lodged in the wall. Police believe approximately three shells were fired from a shotgun. The incident is under investigation.
Also Monday, a Grandview High School student will be charged with possession of marijuana under 40 grams and drug paraphernalia, but few details are available as to how the 16-year-old came to the attention of school officials.
Yesterday, too, a burglary was reported in the 600 block of West Fifth Street in which a television set was stolen.
