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.
