Authorities in Baldwin County are investigating a shooting early last Friday that resulted in a mobile home being damaged.

Fortunately, no one was injured and as of Monday, no one had been arrested in connection with the crime.

Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office Detective Capt. Brad King, who heads the criminal investigations division, said detectives are now following up on the case.

In an incident report, Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Jeffrie Veal said the shooting happened at a residence on the 2500 block of Belfair Drive in reference to an aggravated assault case.

The deputy said she met with several individuals when she got to the scene.

Veal said she talked to a woman who two people, both described as men, came to the door of her residence at the mobile home park. The woman told the deputy that the men began beating on her door shorty after midnight Thursday.

The woman said she didn’t recognize either of the men.

The same woman told Veal that she saw two cars racing through the parking lot of the mobile home park earlier, whom she didn’t recognize either.

Another person, an elderly man, said he heard a lot of noise. He said someone knocked on the door of his residence but he refused to get out of bed, according to the incident report. Veal said the man told her that he takes medication which makes him very drowsy so he went back to sleep.

After getting up that morning, the man said he discovered that his home had been damaged by bullet holes.

Veal said she discovered five bullet holes in the man’s residence.

Four of the bullets had hit the east side of the mobile home - all described as being “very small in diameter,” while one of them on the north side of the residence appeared to have been fired by a larger size caliber gun, according to Veal.

Anyone with information about the shooting incident should call the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office tip line at 478-445-5102.
