The Alexandria Police Department is investigating a series of three shots fired incidents that occurred between Dec. 28 and Jan. 4.

The first in this most recent string of incidents took place at the intersection of N. Henry and Montgomery streets just after 5:30 p.m. on Dec. 28, according to APD Public Information Officer Amanda Paga. Police discovered shell casings at the scene, and although no injuries were reported, there was confirmed property damage.

On Jan. 1, a second shots fired incident was reported in the 1400 block of Jamieson Ave. just before 2 a.m. Officers also found shell casings, and, like in the first incident, no injuries were reported but property damage was sustained in the area, according to Paga.

The third incident took place around 4 p.m. on Jan. 4 in the 5700 block of Dunster Court, Paga said in an email. Shell casings were discovered, but no injuries or property damage occurred.

All three cases remain under investigation, and those with information are encouraged to contact Sgt. Taylor at 703-746-6271.
