After repeated reports of gunfire at a local apartment complex, Statesboro police investigators are asking for the public's help in finding out who is responsible.

Statesboro police Detective Lt. James Winskey said Monday that it has yet to be determined whether the same offenders are responsible for gunshots fired at 111 South Apartments on Tuesday, March 29; Saturday, April 16; and Sunday, April 17, but he said the case remains under investigation.

Statesboro police Maj. Rob Bryan, interim chief, said in a statement released Monday that the incident in March happened around 8:43 p.m., and officers responding to the "shots fired" call found "shell casings and minor damage to the property of 111 South Apartments," but "officers were unable to locate any victims or offenders in this incident."

Saturday around 2:55 p.m., Statesboro police officers responded again to 111 South Apartments "after receiving a complaint of shots being fired in the area," Bryan said. However, "officers were unable to locate any victims or offenders." No damage was reported Saturday.

Officers were called back to the apartments around 5:28 a.m. Sunday for an unrelated complaint and "while on scene, officers heard multiple gunshots in the area," Bryan said. "Officers investigated the gunshots and located a vehicle and property of 111 South Apartments that had been damaged. Officers were unable to locate any offenders or other victims in the area."

Statesboro police Detective Kevin Weatherly is leading the investigation. Police ask that anyone with information concerning this case contact the Statesboro Police Department at (912) 764-9911.

Tips also may be submitted anonymously at www.tipsoft.com or by texting "TIPSSPD" followed by the message to 274637 (CRIMES). All information is strictly confidential, Bryan said.
