No arrests have been made as yet in a “shots fired” incident in Minden Tuesday night.

Minden Police Chief Steve Cropper said officers answered a call in the 300 block of Plateau Street around 11 p.m.

“The house was hit by multiple rounds, and one bullet hit the pillow where a juvenile girl was sleeping,” Cropper said. “There were several people in the house, and they all had to dive for cover. Fortunately, there were no injuries.”

Officers reportedly found 21 casings from two firearms at the site. The chief said some rounds were from a pistol and some from a rifle.

While investigating this incident, officers reportedly heard gunshots in the distance two separate times but were unable to determine their exact location. 

The investigation is ongoing at this time.
