Fridley Police Seek Tips on Bullet Holes in Home

Bullets fired at a 57th Place home have police asking for the public's help.

Fridley Police are asking the public for information related to bullets fired at a home in the 400 block of 57th Place early Thursday. 

The home had bullet holes in the bathroom wall, garage door and fence, according to a statement from the Fridley Police Department issued Friday morning.

Lt. Mike Monsrud said the Anoka County Crime Lab found bullet fragments at the scene. It's too early to say for sure from which direction the bullets were fired, he said, but it's likely they came from 57th Avenue NE, to the south of the residence. 

The blocks between 57th Place and 57th Avenue NE are narrow, with only a single row of houses. Most homes face north onto 57th Place but many have garages facing south onto 57th Avenue. 

According to the statement, police responded shortly after 1 a.m. Thursday to several reports from people who heard four to seven gunshots in the area, but officers found nothing unusual.

Then at 6:19 a.m. Thursday, a homeowner on the block reported finding the bullet hole in the bathroom wall. Investigators found three more bullet holes: two in the garage door and one in the fence.

Fridley Police ask anyone with information about the incident to contact them by calling Anoka County Dispatch at 763-427-1212.
