Shots fired, no victim found

NEW CASTLE — A report of gunshots fired inside a home in the 700 block of Court Street yielded no victim, police said.

New Castle officers went to the house around 6:30 p.m. Saturday after neighbors reported hearing eight gunshots. One of the neighbors said she heard a man say he killed someone.

Police said the front door was unlocked and they went inside, but they could not find a victim.

They found two spent rounds on the kitchen floor and four entry holes in a wall between the living room and the kitchen.

Five more holes were found in a kitchen wall. One was in the kitchen door.

Three women who live in the house were not home at the time of the shooting, police said.

A witness told police he saw a man get into a white van that sped away.

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives voted to authorize Speaker John Boehner to sue President Obama for allegedly overstepping his legal authority with the way he's handled Obamacare. Good call?

Yes. Obama's been overstepping his authority since day one in office. It's time he pay the piper.
No. The allegations are ridiculous and the law suit is a waste of time and tax payer money.
I don't know. I'm not a huge fan of Obama, but the suit seems a little extreme.
