Gunfire reported in Grandview

GRANDVIEW - A home in the 400 block of Forsell Road was struck by bullets this past weekend in one of two calls to Grandview police this past Saturday regarding gunfire.

The damage was reported Saturday night after the home's residents returned to find multiple hits to the front walls of the residence.

No one was at home during the time of the gunfire.

Grandview police say they have no suspect in the case, in which a medium caliber firearm was used to fire at the house.

Grandview Assistant Police Chief Mark Ware said the case has the "earmarks" of being gang-related, but there were no witnesses to the shooting.

Ware added, "The house has not been terribly active with gang-related calls, but residents may have gang association."

Also on Saturday, Grandview police were alerted to gunfire in the 300 block of Cedar Street, where a resident reported hearing two or three shots fired. Officers contacted other people in the neighborhood, though, who said they did not hear anything.

In other activity since this past Friday, vehicle tires were slashed in the 1000 block of West Fourth Street and approximately $350 worth of power tools were stolen from a shed in the 400 block of Old Inland Empire Highway.

Offices also learned of another burglary yesterday, Sunday, in the 900 block of Rockyford, where a laptop computer, i-Pod, Wii and games were missing.

Also yesterday, Grandview police fielded a call about a 1988 Honda Civic stolen from the 200 block of Ash Street.
