LEWISTON — Dispatchers for the Lewiston Police Department received several calls Monday night reporting possible gunfire in the area of 230 Bartlett St.

Lt. David St. Pierre said Tuesday several of the callers said the noise they heard shortly before 11 p.m. could have been fireworks, not gunshots.

Police searched the area “and were unable to find any obvious signs there were actual gunshots fired,” according to St. Pierre.

“We did find a vehicle had a broken window and are investigating the possibility the window could have been struck by a bullet,” he said.

Police were unsure whether the damage to the vehicle was linked to the reports of possible gunshots, St. Pierre said, because no shell casings were found and none of the damage to the vehicle was clearly caused by a bullet or projectile.
