HERNANDO, Miss. (localmemphis.com) – Hernando Police are investigating after they say shots were fired at a home this weekend.

It happened about 1:00 p.m. Saturday along Walkers Way near Williams Brooks Lane. Investigators say they received several calls about shots being fired, and located “evidence of a projectile striking the rear of a residence on Walkers Way.”

Investigators say they searched throughout the area but did not find evidence of any more shots.

No one has been arrested by in Hernando police issued a statement, saying in part, “The incident is still being investigated and we would like the public to know that these calls and cases are taken seriously.  At this point, we believe someone simply exercised poor judgment by firing a weapon into a wooded area and it does not appear to be intentional by the evidence.  We will continue to clarify these findings and are attempting to locate any and all individuals who may have been shooting in the area during that time.  Any information in regards to this matter by the public would be greatly appreciated.”
