LaGrange Police are investigating a shooting incident that caused a stray bullet to strike a home on Country Club Road.

On Tuesday night around 9:30 p.m., LaGrange Police officers responded to Clark Street near Jefferson Street in reference to shots fired in the area.

Officers were also called to a residence in the 400 block of Country Club Road upon receiving reports of a home that was struck by a bullet.

Police spoke with residents at both locations and learned that shots were heard on Jefferson Street but not in the Country Club Drive area.

Investigators believe based on the physical and testimonial evidence from both locations that the shots were not targeted. Someone discharged a firearm randomly in the area of Jefferson Street which struck the home on Country Club Drive, according to an LPD press release about the incident.

No one was injured as a result of the gunshot, which police say was fired with no regard for life or property.

Damage was only reported at one home on County Club Road, which is nearly a mile away from where the shots were fired.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the LaGrange Police Department at (706) 883-2603. Anonymous tips can also be provided to the Troup County Crime Stoppers at (706) 812-1000.
