At approximately 3:18 a.m., on Oct. 10, officers of the Morgantown Police Department responded to a report of shots fired in the 900 block of Snider Street. When officers arrived, they were able to locate several shell casings and determine that the people responsible for the discharge of the weapon were located inside of 917 Snider Street.
