YOUNGSTOWN — Four incidents of gunfire were reported in the city Tuesday evening, damaging numerous homes on Hunter Avenue. No injuries were reported.

The last of the four incidents was at 10:27 p.m., when officers went to the 2600 block of Hunter Avenue on the South Side regarding gunfire and found one house had been hit numerous times in the front and side by a large caliber rifle.

Police said it appeared that residents of the home fired back from the driveway, where officers found 31 spent bullet shell casings.

A resident of a nearby home told police a bullet entered the person’s basement through a window and was found in the basement.

Another Hunter resident reported that the front porch of their house was hit four times.

In the first block of Lauderdale Avenue on the North Side, residents heard two to three gunshots coming from a black Chevrolet Cruze with two men inside it at 7:41 p.m. Officers collected two bullet shell casings.

At 8:16 p.m., officers were called to the 1700 block of Rosedale Avenue on the South Side, where a resident said he was sitting on the couch and heard gunfire outside the house. One bullet struck the house, and officers found five spent bullet casings nearby.

At 10:16 p.m., officers were called to the first block of Glenaven Avenue by the city’s ShotSpotter system, which detects gunfire on the city’s South Side. It detected seven gunshots.
