Written by

Akron police are looking for tips to help them solve a mysterious crime Friday night.

What they know so far, is that neighbors in the 300 block of Crestwood Avenue in West Akron called to report they heard multiple gunshots at about 9:18 PM.

When police arrived though; they found multiple shell casings, including some from rifles, scattered around the scene–but no shooting victims.

In addition, three blocks away, in the 200 block of Grove Street, they found a house and at least parked car with bullet holes that indicated there had been a gun battle.

At that point, they say, they tried to get the occupants of the home to cooperate with them, and when that didn't happen; nearly a dozen people exited the building and were detained.

Looking around inside; police say they found two handguns, a rifle drum magazine, and "other evidence", but again – no shooting victims.

What they were told, is that a suspect, or suspects, fled the scene in a vehicle right after the incident.

Was anybody shot? If so, who did it, and where did they go?
