COLUMBIA — A house on the 1700 block of Bold Ruler Court sustained damage from gunfire for the second time in two weeks in the early hours Sunday morning.

Columbia police responded to reports of shots fired in north Columbia around 2:50 a.m. on Sunday, according to a news release sent by Columbia Police Officer Latisha Stroer. Police found nine shell casings on the west side of Derby Ridge Drive near the 1600 block of Citadel Drive.

Police also discovered six bullet holes in a house on Bold Ruler Court, according to the release. The same house also sustained damage during a similar incident on March 13.

The residents of the house were not home when the shots were fired and there were no reports of injuries, according to the release. There was no suspect information available Sunday afternoon and the investigation is ongoing.

Police also discovered a bullet in the road at North Boulevard and Coats Street near Business Loop 70 early Sunday morning. Officers were on patrol in the area when they heard several shots fired. No witnesses could be found, no injuries were reported and no suspect information was available, according to the release.

Stroer said there was no evidence the two incidents were related.
