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.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 fell from the sky in Donetsk, Ukraine, on Thursday, killing all 298 people aboard. Many are speculating that Russian rebels (supported by Vladimir Putin) are responsible for downing the aircraft. What do you think?

Yes. All evidence points that way.
No. Everyone is so quick to point fingers, but there's not enough evidence to support claims of Russian guilt.
I'm not sure. I'll just wait until the investigation is over to make up my mind.
What is up with these Malaysian Airlines planes? I know one airline I won't be flying any time soon...
