The front door of a home in the  100 block of Hann Street now has eight bullet holes after an early-morning shooting Monday. 

Another round pierced a window frame of the home on Hann, a small street off North Locust Street near Quakertown Park. There could have been more rounds fired that hit a nearby tree, according to Shane Kizer, a spokesman for the police department. No one was injured during the shooting. 

A caller reported multiple gunshots at 5:55 a.m. When police responded, several bullet casings were found outside of the house. The people living in the house said they did not know who could have fired the rounds. 

The shooting is still under investigation, Kizer said.
