Two shootings over the weekend left bullet holes in Anniston homes, though police said today that no one was injured in either incident.

Anniston police Capt. Allen George said Monday that the shootings could be related, but that the department did not have enough evidence to connect them as of Monday morning.

George said the first shooting happened Friday night between 10:45 p.m. and 10:55 p.m. on the 2000 block of Woodland Avenue. The 37-year-old homeowner was not home at the time of the shooting, but her 19-year-old son and his 18-year-old girlfriend were inside watching TV, the captain said.

George said the two victims told police they heard six gunshots and dropped to the floor until the shooting stopped.

George said officers found one bullet hole next to the front bedroom window and several other bullet holes between the living room window and porch. Police recovered one bullet from the floor of the front bedroom, the captain said.

George said the second shooting occurred on Saturday night between 11 p.m. and 11:18 p.m. on the 1500 block of Bacon Avenue. The captain said that the 35-year-old homeowner told police that she heard six gunshots coming from the street. When the shooting stopped she noticed a bullet hole in her bedroom wall, George said.

George said officers discovered six bullet holes in the north side of the woman’s home and also found six .380-caliber shell casings in the road.

There were no suspects as of Monday morning, according to George. Any suspect could face two felony charges of discharging a firearm into a building, according to police reports.
