A home targeted in a drive-by shooting the night of Dec. 29 was struck again overnight Dec. 31 to Jan. 1, police say.

Officer Luke Bonkiewicz said police are trying to track down the same suspect for both.

He said the first happened shortly after 9:30 p.m. Dec. 29 outside a home near 23rd and Orchard streets. It started with an argument between the suspect and a 40-year-old man at the home. 

The suspect left but returned about an hour and a half later and fired two shots at the home before leaving, Bonkiewicz said.

In addition to the 40-year-old man, a 22-year-old woman and three boys were inside at the time. 

No one was injured.
