Lowell Home Hit by Gunfire
LOWELL -- Gunshots fired in the city’s South Lowell neighborhood late Saturday night left several bullet holes in the siding of a Calvin Street home.
No injuries were reported from the shooting, Lowell police Capt. Paul Laferriere said Sunday afternoon.
“A light colored sedan was seen leaving the area,” he added.
Police responded to Calvin Street around midnight Sunday after receiving reports of shots fired in the neighborhood. A sweep of the area turned up several casings in front of 57 Calvin St., Laferriere said.
Further investigation led to the discovery of bullet holes in the same home’s siding.
Police were back on the scene Sunday afternoon, as a trio of cruisers were parked near the corner of Calvin and Berkeley streets.
Two neighborhood residents, who wished to remain anonymous, said they were in bed when they heard the noise they later found out was gunshots.
“We didn’t know what we heard,” said one resident.
They expressed surprise gunshots would be fired in their typically quiet portion of the city.
