On May 15, around 4:06 p.m., officers responded to the apartment complex located in the 13600 block of Mary’s Way in Woodbridge to investigate destruction of property.
A resident of an apartment told police that a bullet hole was found in his ceiling appearing to have come from the apartment above him.
