ELKO – Police are continuing to follow up on leads after more than a dozen gunshots were fired at a house in a neighborhood off North Fifth Street early Saturday morning.

Police were called at about 5:15 a.m., said Lt. Mike Palhegyi.

When they arrived they found that multiple gunshots had struck a home and vehicle, while some shots also hit other residences and a second vehicle.

Residents were home at the time but no one was injured.

“The attack appears to have been targeted,” Palhegyi said. Regarding the other homes being hit, he said “I think it was just bad shooting.”

After obtaining a warrant, police searched a vehicle that may have been involved in the crime, Palhegyi said late Monday afternoon.

Police did not release the address of the home that was targeted.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact Elko police detectives at 777-7310.
