A report of gunshots early Saturday brought police to 1 Pine and School streets, but there was no evidence of a shooting to be found, a police spokesman said.

“Officers arrived on scene within minutes of the call,” said police in a press release, describing the three gunshots heard and that the person calling in the report saw a tan or gold vehicle — the kind wasn’t specified — fleeing afterward.

Officers returned “at first light” to conduct a second search for evidence in the Area IV neighborhood, this time finding a second resident saying there were gunshots at about the time the original call was made.

Police went door to door in the area at around 9 a.m. to tell residents of the reported gunshots.
