Police seeking info after high-powered rifle shot at houses

SALINA — The Salina Police Department is asking for help from the public in its investigation into shots from a high-powered rifle that struck two houses late Thursday night in the 500 block of West Beloit.

Capt. Mike Sweeney said anyone with information is urged to call Salina Police or Crimestoppers.

At least five shots were fired, with two striking one home, one striking another home across the street, and two more hitting trees outside the first home.

One slug went through the mattress of a woman who was asleep when the shots were fired about 11:30 p.m. Thursday night. It is believed the shots came from the north on Pershing Street.
