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.

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.”
