No one hurt in Palmetto shooting

MANATEE — Someone late Monday fired a single gunshot into a residence in the 1600 block of 18th Street Court East, Palmetto. No one was injured, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.

The shooting happened about 10:15 p.m. just after someone knocked on the front door. The bullet went through the door, traveled through a living room wall and came to rest in a bathroom, according to a news release.

Three adults and three children were inside the residence at the time of the shooting.

It was not known if the shooting was related to an earlier argument one of the children had gotten into while walking home, according to the sheriff's office.

No description of the shooting suspect or suspects was available.
