MPD Investigates Calls of Shots Fired

Meridian, Miss. Meridian police say they investigated multiple instances of gunshots being fired this weekend, but officials say not all the calls were legitimate.

The MPD says three calls were bogus because officers were in the areas when the calls were made and no shots had been fired. The police say three other such calls were investigated an no evidence was found to back up the reports.

However, police say a shot was fired into a dwelling in the 2600 block of 18th Street Saturday around 11:22 p.m.

The MPD says officers arrived on the scene in 4 minutes and determined that the house was hit once but no one was hurt. That case is still under investigation.
