SALISBURY — Police on Tuesday responded to a Salisbury home after neighbors reported hearing gunshots and located nearly 20 shell casings outside the property.

No one was injured, said police spokesman Lt. Lee Walker, but it was the second time this month that police have been called to 407 Old Concord Road for a shooting incident. In both cases, police received a 911 call about hearing gunshots. When police arrived Tuesday to the latest incident, they found shell casings in the roadway near the home.

Police have responded to other incidents at this home, too, Walker said.

He said a woman who lives at the home was there with her children at the time of the shooting.
