SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Dozens of bullets were fired into a house in Springfield’s Mason Square Friday night.

Neighbors initially reported it to police as a shoot out, but police said that’s not what happened.

Springfield Police Lt.

There were several live rounds found on the ground as well, according to Lt. Rolland.

The shell casings were for 9 millimeter and .380 caliber pistols.

“There were at least two firearms involved,” Lt Rolland told 22News.

Lt. Rolland said that all of the gunfire was directed at a home on Burr Street, but no one was home, and no one was hurt.
