Investigators in Marion, Illinois are investigating after reported gunshots were heard on Nov. 26.

According to Det. Maria Dwyer, police responded shortly after 11 p.m. to the 300 block of S. Second Street after receiving calls from residents of hearing around five gunshots.

Police were unable to find any victims, suspects or a specific location at the time.

On Nov. 27, a resident that had called the police the previous day found a hole in the wall of her home.

Police found bullet casings outside the home and one bullet inside the home.

Doris Devous was sitting in her house watching TV and reading Sunday night when at about a quarter after 11 she heard five gunshots ring out on her street.

She dialed 911 who quickly responded. She then went to sleep only to find that a bullet had gone through the front of her house, through the couch and hit an end table.

She found the bullet laying on the floor.

"My immediate thought was, they are shooting at my house," said Devous. "It scared me a lot yes, I think I shook for about 30 minutes. You know it made me really nervous, it's pretty crazy because you don't expect something like this to happen."

According to police, there is no indication the home was targeted.

Police have already talked with other people who heard the gunshots on Nov. 26.

Anyone who has information about the suspects involved, or has any other information, is asked to contact the Marion Police Investigative Unit at (618) 993-2124.
