Alexandria Police have apprehended no suspects after answering a call for shots fired on Saturday night in the 1000 block of Madison Street in Old Town.
Police were called at 10:22 p.m. and found that a building and a vehicle were struck by bullets. They also recovered and a number of spent shell casings from a handgun, Alexandria Police Spokesman Lt. Courtney Ballantine told ALXnow.

The last report of shots fired in the city occurred last month near Taney Avenue Park in the city’s West End. Before that, police responded to two report of shots fired in January, in a S. Reynolds Street Parking Lot and near Bishop Ireton High School.
