An investigation determined that a bullet fired Tuesday night into a residence was the result of gunshots exchanged in the Walmart parking lot, Paris Police Chief Bob Hundley said Wednesday.
“There, officers found that home had a large-caliber bullet in the side, and found a .45-caliber bullet inside the home lodged into some clothing only four feet from where an individual had been lying,” the chief said.
Officers traced the trajectory back to a wooden fence and into the Walmart parking lot.
Officers retrieved surveillance video from the store and found that two vehicles had met in the parking lot, the chief said.
The surveillance video revealed that one vehicle drove off a short distance, then returned to the other vehicle, “at which time shots were exchanged between the two vehicles,” Hundley said.
That no one was injured in the trailer home was fortunate, the chief said.
“No other reports attributed to this incident have been reported. The investigation is continuing,” Hundley said.
Police officers responded to 86 calls for service in the 24 hours ending Wednesday morning, resulting in seven arrests, all misdemeanors, he said.
