Police seek leads after shots fired on South Brownell

The Williston Police Department is encouraging residents with any information about shots fired at a Williston residence to come forward.

Officers responded to a call Dec. 28 at approximately 2 a.m. about possible gunshots near South Brownell Road and Kirby Lane.

“Throughout the day, Police were able to determine that bullet(s) had been fired at a residence in the area,” according to a department press release.

“We, the police, cannot say that this residence was specifically targeted, but this one residence was the only one damaged,” Chief Todd Shepard wrote in a post on the department’s Facebook page. “At this time, we don’t have any reason to believe that there is an ongoing or immediate public safety threat to the community.’

Shepard told the Observer on Monday that there were no new leads. Police encourage anyone with information to contact the department at 878-6611.
