Columbus Police said they are searching for the person who fired shots late Sunday at a residence and vehicle on 30th Avenue.

No injuries were reported, but the 11:30 p.m. incident caused at least $200 worth of property damage, according to a report.

Officers said they were called to 30th Avenue around 11:30 p.m. Sunday to speak to the man and woman whose property was damaged as a result of the incident.

A 72-year-old woman told police on the scene that she was sleeping in her 30th Avenue home when an unknown person shot her residence, damaging two windows and two walls. The victim couldn't determine the value of the damaged property, police added.

Officers also spoke to a 25-year-old man who said he was smoking a cigarette in his vehicle when that same individual shot his car, leaving a small hole in his $200 tire. The man said he didn't even know his vehicle had been struck until he exited the automobile.

Both victims said they have no clue who may be responsible for the incident, which police described as reckless conduct. No one has been listed as a suspect in this case, which remains under investigation.
