Rocky Mount police are investigating a shots fired call on Jan. 5 that resulted in two neighboring homes being damaged.
Police responded about 2:04 a.m. to a shots fired call on the 500 block of Eastern Avenue. They spoke to the 61-year-old woman who lives at 510 Eastern Ave., who said she thought she heard something fall in the living room but saw nothing wrong.
Police investigated her home and found that gunshots have struck her living room wall.
Police are investigating that case as an aggravated assault as someone was in the home when the bullets struck the home.
Police also noticed damaged to the home next door at 512 Eastern Ave. The occupants of that home were not present at the time, but gunfire struck the front door, living room wall and kitchen door of the house.
That case is being investigated as property damage, since the home was empty at the time of the attack.
