Hilliard: As many as 10 gunshots fired at Lampton Pond home

Hilliard police say at least five and perhaps as many as 10 shots were fired early Sunday morning, March 2, at a home in the Fairways at Lakewood subdivision.

Officers were dispatched at 1:45 a.m. March 2 on a report of gunfire in the 6100 block of Lampton Pond Drive.

Residents in the area reported as many as 10 shots emanating from Lampton Pond Drive and Walkerview Drive, according to Hilliard police. One witness said a light-colored, four-door vehicle, possibly an early 1990s model, fled "at a high rate of speed," according to police reports.

Officers reported five bullets hit the Lampton Pond Drive residence, including a window and stucco.

No one was injured, police said.

Police would not speculate if the incident was random or if individuals were targeted, according to reports.
