YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – On Wednesday, police announced they found 30 bullet holes in a house in Youngstown on the east side and 60 cartridges on the street.

The police were arrested at Council Rock Dr. called where the residents had found several cartridge cases on the street.

Police were called into the area twice on Tuesday – first for bullet damage to a house on the same street and also for damage to a house on the next block on the 1500s on Craiglee Ave. No housings were found for these calls either.

Police officers reportedly counted 30 bullet holes in the Council Rock Drive home when they arrived Wednesday and the front window had been shot out.

Because there were so many bullet holes, other cars were called so the officers could search the house for victims. They didn’t find any, reports say.

The cases found on the street came from three different weapons, reports say. Police found .223 and 7.62 mm cases, normally used in semi-automatic rifles, and 9 mm cases.

Witnesses told police on Tuesday they had heard gunfire in the area several times recently, including from nearby Lincoln Park.
