IOWA CITY — Police found more than 50 shell casings when responding to a shots- fired incident early Sunday in Iowa City.
According to the Iowa City Police Department, officers were called just after 4 a.m. to the 500 block of South Scott Boulevard for reports of multiple gunshots.
Iowa City Police Capt. Denise Brotherton, commander of the Field Operation Division, said 911 dispatchers at the Johnson County Joint Emergency Communications Center fielded “five or six” 911 calls reporting gunfire.
Investigators said evidence indicated more than 50 shots had been fired from multiple weapons.
The initial investigation indicates the shooting was coming from more than one direction, Brotherton said.
Police said vehicles and buildings in the area were damaged, but no injuries were reported. Brotherton said investigators still are working to determine the total extent of damage.
No arrests have been made. Police said they do not think the shooting was random, and the initial investigation indicates the shooting likely involved people who are known to each other, Brotherton said.
