Another apparent drive-by shooting has left a residence and car damaged by gunfire in Baldwin County, local authorities say.

No one reportedly was injured in the latest such crime that happened early Thursday.

And as of Friday, no one reportedly had been arrested in connection with the case.

Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Brandon Clements said in an incident report that he received a call about shots having been fired outside a residence on the 400 block of Georgia Highway 49 West. The shooting took place between 2 a.m. and 2:14 a.m.

The deputy said a woman who lives at the residence told him that she had been asleep when she heard what she believed was seven to 10 gunshots.

After hearing the gunshots, Clements said the woman told him that she went outside and discovered that her home, as well as a car had been struck by bullets.

The woman said she had no idea who might have wanted to shoot at her residence.

Clements said he talked with several other people, too, who were inside the residence when the shooting erupted.

Each of them said they were asleep at the time of the gunfire.

In the roadway, Clements said there were a total of 18 spent shell casings in front of the residence.

“Three of the shell casings were .40-caliber and the remaining 15 were 9 mm,” Clements said in his report.

The shell casings were photographed by Deputy Joshua Holcomb and then gathered for evidence in the case.

Clements said he saw multiple bullet holes in the front of the residence.

“The glass storm door was also busted from a bullet hole,” Clements said.

A 2009 Nissan Altima also had its front windshield damaged by a bullet.

Because of the nature of the shooting, the on-call detective was called to the scene to begin an immediate investigation.

Anyone with information about this crime or similar ones that have taken place of late should call the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office tip line at 478-445-5102.
