Bullets enter 2 Augusta homes early Saturday



At least two Augusta homes were damaged in a shooting early Saturday, but no one was harmed, police say.

Luther Jones, 62, said he heard several shots fired outside his home in the 1900 block of Second Avenue about 4 a.m., according to an incident report. Before calling 911, Jones said, he found a hole in the attic vent on the east side of his home.

Joanne Williams, who lives next door to Jones, said she heard the shots about 4 a.m. and rolled onto the floor. She told deputies a bullet came through her bedroom wall and came to a rest on the opposite side of her bed.

Police later found 33 shell casings in front of a home in the 1900 block of First Avenue. Most of the people in the area reported hearing the shots but did not see who carried out the shooting, the report said.
