Multiple shots fired during home invasion

Posted: Updated:

The Corpus Christi Police Department is on the scene of home invasion on the 1000 block of Chamberlain St., near Ray High School.

Officers were dispatched to the area just after 4 a.m. for numerous shots fired. When officers arrived on scene, the homeowner said that three to four people forced their way into the home. Gunfire was then exchanged from inside and outside of the house, according to Lt. Steven Gonzalez.

Two people inside the home were uninjured, according to Gonzalez.

"They're not injured, which is the great thing about it, "Lt. Gonzalez said. "No one was shot, they weren't shot, they weren't hurt, just a little shaken up."

Several casings were found at the scene from different types of firearms, according to officers.

"Some type of assault rifle was used in this offense," Lt. Gonzalez said.  

Up to 20 shots were fired at the scene, officers said. Casings from at least two different sized weapons were found. 

Officers are still searching for the people involved and investigating who exactly fired the shots.

Three to four people wearing all black fled the scene in a small, dark passenger car.
