Nearly three hours later, police responded to a shooting on the 600 block of Pineknoll Drive where a suspect had fired at least five shots at a house while the residents were asleep, police said. There was minor damage to the house, but no one was injured.

Just before 9 p.m. Sunday, police responded to a shooting one block away from a house that was struck on Friday morning. According to police reports, the residents were at the house when a gunman fired several rounds from a dark-colored Chevrolet Impala. No one was injured.
