Two Brainerd residents told police their homes were shot up early Monday in incidents a short time apart.

A woman said she and her husband were about to go to sleep on Sioux Trail when they heard several gunshots outside.

They found two bullet holds in a front window, one in a wall by the kitchen, and two more in a couch in the living room.

Police found 11 spent 9mm shell casings by the street.

Twenty minutes later, a man on Pawnee Trail said he was awakened by the sound of 3-4 gunshots.

He found that a bullet had hit the side of his house.

It went through a bedroom door and into an interior wall behind the bedroom door.

Neither resident had any idea who would have shot at them or why.

Alexander Vansickle said he was inside the Electric Cowboy on Brainerd Road for a couple of hours.

He said his car keys were stolen during that time.

He found the doors unlocked on his 2003 Honda Element.

Two female companions found that their purses had been stolen. Both contained credit cards. One had a Droid cell phone and the other a Verizon flip phone taken.

Gae Kim of Beauty World on Dodson Avenue said a black male demanded he hand over money from the cash register.

He said the robber did not display a gun, but kept one hand in the pocket of his hoodie.

The robber tried to get inside the cash register, but was unable to. Meanwhile, Mr. Kim retrieved his own gun, causing the would-be robber to flee..

He was described as in his mid-20s to early 30s, 5'7" and with a thin build.

On Northrop Street, William Dunstan said he and girlfriend Brandy Ruff argued.

He said the next morning he called at his work and said she had broken a window while entering his place.

When he got home, he said he found the broken kitchen window.

He said he also discovered a broken candy dish, a smashed stereo in the bedroom and the screen on his cell phone shattered.

Ms. Ruff was charged with disorderly conduct.

Nicole Birt of W. 42nd Street said Kimberly Shelby came over bringing some clothes and other items that she said belonged to “Hollywood.”

That was, she said, when both ladies realized that Hollywood was catting around.

Police said there was “some type scuffle” between the two women.

There was an attempt to contact witness “Hollywood,” but he “would not show his face or give his real name.”
