Sheriff’s investigators are looking for the public’s help in solving two crimes over the weekend.

At about 3 a.m. Sunday, a 93-year-old woman who lives on Half Mile Lane awakened to the sounds of someone in her house.

She yelled at the suspect, and they left, but she was unable to get a good description, said Sheriff J.D. Hartman.

On Sunday afternoon, a teen was shooting basketball in a driveway off Eatons Church Road when shots were fired from a vehicle in his direction.

It was about 1:45 p.m. when the small white Chevrolet truck, with damage on the driver’s side and missing the driver’s side mirror, drove up and several shots were fired in the teen’s direction from a handgun.

Investigators found where two rounds went through a garage door. The teen ran to a neighbor’s house to call for help, Hartman said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. Cody Stephens at
