LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -Police are still actively searching for whoever  fired several rounds of bullets into a home on 18th street late Sunday night.

It started around 10:30 Sunday night at a home about a block south of the 18th and Greenbush intersection.

So far there have been no injuries reported, but the suspect, or suspects, remain at large.

Lafayette Police Sergeant Matt Gard told News 18 that 11 bullet holes were found in the home. Police also found multiple shell casings.

LPD said they spoke with one person they thought to be involved in the incident, but that person was later released.

Bobby Adams lives in the neighborhood where it happened. He calls the home where the shots were fired "the problem house."

Adams said the cops have visited the home numerous times.

"Over the summer there was a stabbing," Adams said. "And out here in the last couple of weeks, yeah it's ramped up with gunfire and stuff like that. I've been here since July and it's been pretty quiet up until now."

Adams said he's thinking about getting additional security cameras after this incident.

If you have any information on this investigation please call Lafayette police at (765) 807-1200 with any information.
