  • More than a dozen bullets from two handguns were fired at a Springettsbury Twp. home early Monday morning.
  • Police said the crime isn't random, meaning the home was targeted.
  • Anyone with information about the gunfire is asked to call police at (717) 757-3525, or call 911.

No one was hurt early Monday morning when more than a dozen bullets struck a Springettsbury Township home, police said.

.

It happened about 1:40 a.m. at a home in the 800 block of East 11th Avenue, according to township police.

The two people inside at the time escaped injury, according to Springettsbury Township Police Chief Dan Stump. Both are adults, he said.

"It wasn't random," Stump said of the gunfire, which police believe to be an isolated incident.

The chief said more than a dozen bullets from two different handguns were fired at the home, but only a couple of those rounds actually penetrated inside.

He said investigators have a "pretty good idea" of the motive but can't yet make their suspicions public.

"We have a few really good leads we're following," Stump said. "We're looking at several persons of interest."

Springettsbury Township Police Chief Dan Stump has admitted there are problems within his department and he has taken responsibility for correcting them.
