One incident involved gunshots into an empty trailer. Another incident, on March 19 2020, saw a single gunshot into an occupied residence.

More recently, seven more incidents of gunshots or fireworks occurred between March 19 and July 15 this year.

In one of the recent incidents, investigators found a single gunshot into a large water pipe.
