LaGrange police are trying to determine who has repeatedly fired guns behind a home in the area of Steeplechase and Lexington Park drives.

Officers said they were dispatched there for a third time just after 5:30 p.m. Monday, when a homeowner called 911 after an individual was seen shooting a firearm from a vehicle.

The caller said he ran out of his home, and the suspect drove off. He told police he never got a look at the car or the gunman.

According to LaGrange police, the homeowner also called officers twice on Jan. 27, once during the day and another time at night, after more gunshots were fired behind his house.

Both police and the homeowner collected shell casings on the road both times.

All information in this report is gathered from official law enforcement and public safety reports and releases. It is the policy of the Daily News to list the names of people charged with felonies.
