Zanesville police have released more information about a shooting incident on Sharon Avenue Wednesday afternoon.

Captain Tony Coury says at around 4:15 p.m. officers were dispatched to a house at 1614 Sharon Avenue, where they arrested four people. Coury say this is not the first time that officers have been called to this address.

"We have had numerous complaints here at this house," said Captain Coury. A lot of neighbors have called and people that live in that area so we are not only investigating yesterday’s incident but we are investigating other incidents at that location. "

Coury says that he believes that the issues and complaints stem from drug activity going on at the residence. Detectives are currently investigating several suspects.

" We don’t know exactly what transpired or if he was shooting at a child, but we do know shots were fired at that residence they have taken at least four people into custody. "

Coury says he will meet with the Muskingum County Prosecutor about possible charges which could be filed this week. No injuries were reported.
