The Clarksdale Police Department is investigating two incidents of gunfire where someone shot into an occupied dwelling.
The first incident occurred Wednesday night and the second a short time later on Thursday morning. The incidents could be related but police have not said that and the incident is under investigation.
The first call was reported at 9:52 p.m. in the 800 block of Garfield Street and when officers arrived there were several people walking in the area but it soon became apparent this was not to location of the incident.
Police were told by some of the people they stopped that someone had just shot into their home at 819 McKinley. Officers found three shots had been fired into the house and recovered four shell casings in an alley across the street from the house.
Kisha Bruce was listed at the complainant in this incident.
The second case was reported at 12:36 a.m. Thursday in the 400 block of Illinois Street.
Annie Roberson told police she was sitting in her home when she heard several gunshots and heard a vehicle quickly leave the area.
The glass door at the home was hit and police also saw a couple of bullet holes in the wall.
As of Thursday morning no arrests have been made in either incident, but crimes involving guns are a high priority for police and both incidents are under investigation by Clarksdale Assistant Chief Vince Ramirez.
Ramirez has asked anyone with information about either of these incidents to call the Clarksdale Police Department at 621-8156, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or simply dial 911. All calls remain anonymous and cash is paid to those providing information that leads to solving a crime.
Residents are also reminded that while Clarksdale no longer has a blanket curfew, juveniles are not to be out from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. and parents or guardians or adults with them can be fined for curfew violation of youth in their care or in their car.
