GEORGETOWN, Ky. (LEX 18) — Police in Scott County are investigating after several vehicles and a house were sprayed by gunfire. It happened before 2:00 a.m. Thursday on Avondale Avenue in Georgetown, not far from Georgetown College.

No one was injured, but at least one person was inside the home that was hit. A neighbor shared a picture of where a bullet shot through a computer screen into a wall while someone was sitting there.

Georgetown police found close to 40 rounds that were fired, shattering several car windows.

"We just heard all the shots heard like a bunch of fireworks but obviously we knew it wasn't fireworks so we ran into the room really quick into my parents' room," said one neighbor who spoke anonymously.

Police along with Scott County sheriff's deputies spent most of the day looking in and outside the home that was hit. They're trying to determine if it was targeted or randomly struck. It appears the shot may have been fired during a drive-by.

Neighbors say earlier in the week someone fired shots on the same street.

"It was like three different shots and we found the shell next to our trash can but besides them, I was like 'let's sleep on the ground from here on out just to be sure' and last night, it happened again."
