Eight shots from an assault rifle were fired Thursday into an occupied home.
An unknown suspect fired the shots about 9:15 p.m. into a mobile home in the 4100 block of River Road, which is just outside Hickory city limits.
A man and his wife, who live in the residence, were at home when the incident occurred, according to Catawba County Sheriff's Office Lt. Joel Fish. No one was injured.
The bullets' entry into the residence damaged about $1,400 of property, including chairs, a metal wood stove, a TV, a wooden entertainment center and the residence's interior and exterior walls.
Fish said there are no suspects, and the victims gave no indication why anyone would shoot inside their home.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Catawba County Sheriff's Office at (828) 464-5241.
