Arlington County Police were called to the Nauck neighborhood three times over the weekend for reports of gunfire.
The shots fired calls came in Friday night, early Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon, police said, with multiple 911 callers reporting gunfire. No one was reported to be shot in any of the incidents.
A resident tells ARLnow that the first shooting was loud enough to be clearly captured on her security camera.
“Seven gunshots went off around 11:15 p.m. on Friday night,” said the resident, who wanted to remain anonymous. “Police were called and about four SUVs and cruisers were seen canvassing the neighborhood for about 30 minutes afterward.”
Officers found bullet holes in a house on the 2100 block of S. Monroe Street after the second shooting Saturday morning. For each of the other shootings, ACPD says “no evidence of shots fired was located.”
Police are asking for the public’s help investigating the shootings. More from an ACPD press release:
