JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Police are searching for two people who reportedly shot up an apartment early Tuesday morning.

One of the victims told police he heard four to six shots fired at his home in the 600-block of Poplar.

When he looked outside, he saw two men standing next to a car. He was not able to describe the men but believed one is a neighbor.

Officer Kiandra McCain reported finding two bullet holes in the front window frame and a “small grouping of bullet holes in the glass screen door.”

She also reported finding where a bullet grazed the top of the victim’s car and a bullet hole in the front passenger door.

McCain and several other officers attempted to contact the neighbor suspected of the shooting, but no one reportedly came to the door.

“As we were walking back around the house, a black .22-caliber rifle was found laying underneath [a car,]” McCain reported.

McCain seized the rifle, a black magazine, and six .22-caliber bullets. She placed them into evidence at the police department.

She reportedly did not find any shell casings at the scene.
