Greenville police are investigating two Sunday shootings that targeted multiple dwellings, resulting in nearly $2,000 in damages, including a shattered front door.

The department received a report at 8:58 p.m. on Sunday of shots fired in the 100 block of Kristin Drive.

Responding officers found that two occupied apartments and one vacant apartment had been struck by gunfire, according to Kristen Hunter, spokeswoman for the police department. A case report indicates that a semi-automatic handgun and a shotgun were used.

Residents told officers they saw a group of people congregating just before the shots were fired, Hunter said. One suspect reportedly was wearing a black Northface jacket and had dreadlocks.

A short time later, at 9:28 p.m., Greenville police received another shots-fired call.

Officers responded to 1712 S. Pitt St. and, upon arrival, found that the front glass door had been shattered by gunfire, Hunter said. The house next door also was targeted, she said.

A front window was hit four times and a shutter was hit once, according to a case report. Walls also were damaged. The report listed estimated damage to the structures at $1,000. A 2000 Chrysler Town & Country van that was parked outside received an estimated $800 in damages.

The case report does not indicate what type of firearm might have been used.

Officers have developed a possible person of interest in the Pitt Street case, Hunter said. No injuries were reported in either incident, and both remain under investigation.
