NOW: SBPD investigate multiple shots fired from weekend

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – South Bend Police responded to multiple shots fired calls over the weekend. According to police logs, officers responded to a total of 6 calls across the city in less than 24 hours.

“I thought it was going to go through my window or something. I was scared.” Trinidad Zavala, who lives on Pulaski Street, said.

Zavala lives across the street from the first round of gunshots of the weekend. Two houses and a car were struck with bullets in the 500 block of Pulaski. Neighbors say there was a fight before the gunshots. Police did not find any gunshot victims.

Just 5-and-a-half hours later, two more houses and a car were hit by bullets in the 1100 and 1000 blocks of Oak Street. Police say there was a party in the area at the time. Nobody was hit.

Then, at 5:20 in the morning, a woman was shot several times at the Miami Hills apartments on High Street.

There were three more shots fired investigations on Sunday. The first was at 3:41pm at the intersection of Marietta and Haney. Then, back to back shots fired just before 6:00pm on the northwest side of town.

Police won’t say if the shootings are connected. But, a spokesperson says they’re looking at ballistics and witness statements to determine any connection.
