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.

Milwaukee catcher Martin Maldonado has been suspended five games for sucker punching Pittsburgh’s Travis Snider during a bench clearing brawl on Sunday. You OK with that suspension?

Yes. Seems fair.
No. Baseball NEVER gets it right in these situations. Should have been at least 20 games for his sucker punch into a pile of players.
Not sure, but I’d love to see baseball be like hockey and allow two guys to fight for a while before breaking it up. Let’s see how tough Maldonado is then.
