Zanesville Police were called to the 700 block of Echo Avenue late Sunday afternoon after witnesses say a man fired multiple shots into the air in the direction of a woman and her children.

Witnesses say the alleged gunman then retreated into his house, and fled into a garage behind the house.

Neighbors watched on as police searched both the house and garage– but police were unable to locate the suspect in either location.

Two officers then left the scene to locate the suspect.

Neighbors tell WHIZ News that neither the woman, or children were hurt in the shooting.

Police declined to comment at the scene as to the specifics of the incident.

Police closed off Echo Avenue between Superior and Pine streets while they investigated the scene.
