CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Cincinnati police say they are investigating after witnesses estimate as many as 20-40 gunshots were fired in an East Side neighborhood overnight, including some that struck two homes.

It happened in the 4300 block of Eastern Avenue in Columbia Tusculum about 1:30 a.m. Thursday, according to Captain Adam Hennie, the night chief.

Witnesses reported a white car and a silver car firing multiple shots that hit two homes.

It’s not clear yet if the homes were targeted, or if at least one person in each vehicle fired at each other and some of the bullets hit the homes instead, according to Captain Hennie.

Officers collected “several” shell casings from the street, he said.

No injuries were reported.

Suspect information was not available while Cincinnati police continue to investigate.
