Gunshell casings related to shots-fired call recovered

Sunnyside police yesterday (Wednesday) investigated two weapons-related calls.

Just before 9:30 p.m. last night a resident in the area of Beckner Alley and Rouse Road reported hearing five gunshots. Police rushed to the area and recovered five casings believed to have been left at the intersection after shots were fired.

The caller told police a white passenger car was seen leaving the area shortly after the shots were fired, however police were unable to locate the suspect vehicle.

No injuries or damage to property was indicated as a result of the incident.

Police did not provide any further details.
