KINSTON, LENOIR COUNTY -

Kinston Police are searching for who is responsible for firing shots into a residence at the Simon Bright Apartments early Thursday morning.

Neighbors say they heard gunshots around 3:30 a.m. along the 800 block of East Shine Street. Kinston Police responded soon after.

The bullets went through one of the apartments, leaving holes in the window, said neighbors.

Inside the apartment were three people, including a 2-year-old.

Nobody was hurt, said Kinston Police. Authorities say the investigation is ongoing.

This is the third gunshot incident that has happened near the Simon Bright Apartments that we have reported in 2014.

In March, a man was shot and killed as he was headed back to his apartment complex. In April, Kinston Police arrested three men in connection to a shots fired incident near the apartments.
