Murfreesboro Residents Escape Injury After Home Riddled with Bullets


MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – (December 6, 2021) Murfreesboro Police Department (MPD) detectives are searching for the person or persons who riddled a house with bullets, endangering four people, including a three and a 12-year-old on Monday, Dec. 6.

At least three bullets entered the Courtland Street home, but no one was injured.

A MPD officer heard multiple shots while patrolling an area near downtown around 2:40 a.m. and responded to the scene. When he arrived, he discovered more than 20 bullet casing in front of two homes. One home was struck at least six times.
