On September 16, 2022, shortly after 8:00pm, a resident on Myrtle St reported her window was just shot. Officers responded and found little evidence. The next morning, the same woman reported hearing something hit her back fence. She found a small hole and a small caliber bullet on the ground on the opposite side of the fence.

A short time later, a business in the 400 block of S Main St reported two of their windows had been hit by bullets. An additional victim reported he had just discovered his vehicle had been hit by a bullet sometime during the night while it was parked on E. Pine St.

There were no reports of the sounds of shots fired, only of the damage caused by the rounds.

Evidence recovered from all the scenes indicates one firearm was used and it is unclear if a vehicle was used or if the suspect was on foot. Officers are currently checking all the areas for surveillance video.

Chief Neil Cervenka said, “The safety of the Fort Bragg community is our number one priority. It is incredibly dangerous to discharge a firearm in a populated area. We are thankful there were no injuries in any of these incidents.”

Additional officers were called in as a precaution.

The Fort Bragg Police Department encourages anyone with information to call Officer Jarod Frank at (707)961-2800 ext 139.
