Bursts of gunfire had people ducking for cover at Lincoln Homes Wednesday.
Three bursts of three shots each and a final volley of two shots brought police to the community and resulted in police nabbing two people. There were no reports of injury, according to police spokesman Natalie Hall.
At about 2:40 p.m., students, staff and faculty at Austin Peay State University were alerted to the danger after the shots were fired.
One suspect, a black male wearing black and white shorts, might have fled toward the campus. Later it was reported that the suspect fled toward Kraft Street.
Some residents of Lincoln Homes expressed worry that this was the fourth time in two weeks that shots have been fired in and around Lincoln Homes, which is also home to numerous elderly and disabled people as well as low income residents who are concerned about being caught in the crossfire.
Clarksville Police Department are continuing their investigation and ask anyone with information about what happened or the suspect’s location to call CPD at 931-552-9265.
