St. Petersburg police investigating drive-by shooting

ST. PETERSBURG — Police are searching for whomever shot into a home Wednesday morning while a woman and her two young sons were inside.

No one was injured.

Police spokesman Mike Puetz said police were called to 725 11th St. S at about 8 a.m.

Resident Candice Osborne, 28, said she had been sleeping when several bullets came through her home.

She and her children, a 3-year-old boy and an infant, weren't injured. Osborne told police she has lived at the home since August; she had no idea why anyone would shoot at her home.

Police found bullet holes in the house and in a car in the driveway. They do not have a suspect description, but said the shooter may be traveling in an older model burgundy Chevy car with dark tint.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at (727) 893-7780.
