CONYERS -- The Conyers Police Department is looking for a suspect who fired multiple gunshots into a residence on Village Place Circle Monday morning.
Officers were called to the residence at about 8 a.m. where a man said several shots were fired through his dining room window, striking an interior wall between the kitchen and main hallway.
According to the 20-year-old male resident, he was in the bonus room over the garage when he heard a knocking sound coming from the garage. Shortly afterward, he said, the power went out and he heard another knocking noise.
The man said he slowly made his way downstairs to the wall just outside the dining room. "He said as soon as he peeked around the wall to look out the dining room window, the suspect opened fire and began shooting into his residence," the CPD officer wrote in his report.
The man told police he dropped to the floor and waited until the shooting stopped. He then ran to the phone and called police. The victim was not injured in the incident.
Outside officers recovered six shell casings about 12 feet from the residence.
Witnesses in the area told police they heard several shots fired. Witnesses also described a suspect they had seen as a black male in his 20s, wearing a blue hoodie, gray or light-colored jeans and a gray baseball cap.
