GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. (CBS4) – Police are trying to solve a shooting in one of Colorado’s most palatial neighborhoods.
One Greenwood Village home was hit in an apparent drive-by shooting Monday around 11:40 p.m. The bullet passed through a dining room and kitchen at ear level before stopping in a wall-stud.
The bullet’s path tracked directly to the southbound lane of South Dayton Street.
Investigators told the homeowner the slug belongs to a .45 caliber handgun. The homeowner asked that his home and identity not be shown on camera out of fear the shooting may not be random, but connected it to a tactical drug bust that happened in the area earlier this year.
Neighbors say they heard nearly a dozen gunshots Monday night and on Tuesday detectives were seen recovering shell casings from the street.
No one was injured, no arrests have been made, and police do not have a description of a suspect vehicle.
Greenwood Village police are asking for any witnesses to come forward.
