Rocky Mount police are trying to find out why gunshots recently were fired into a residence in the southwest section of the city while people were inside.

The incident occurred shortly before 11 p.m. on March 13 in the 600 block of Paul Street, a police report said.

No one was injured, but a kitchen window was struck and one of the people in the residence was found to be belligerent and was temporarily detained, police Sgt. Brad Summerlin said.

The owner of the residence arrived and gave officers consent to conduct a search for evidence and other damage and marijuana was found in plain view, Summerlin said.

Officers obtained a warrant for one of the occupants, Dashad Williams, 21, for alleged simple possession of the illegal drug, Summerlin said.

The motive for the shooting hasn’t been determined and there are no suspects in the case, Summerlin said.

Anyone with additional information about this case or any crimes in the area is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 252-977-1111 or crimestoppers@rockymountnc.gov
