BURLINGTON, MASS. (WHDH) - An investigation got underway in Burlington early Wednesday morning after an incident of shots fired into a residential apartment building, police said. 

Burlington police said officers responded to the Avalon apartment complex on Arboretum Way around 3:45 a.m. On further investigation, police said authorities determined suspects fired 21 shots from two different weapons while on foot outside an apartment building. There were no injuries.

Police said the people fled the scene in a vehicle that had been stolen out of Everett earlier in the morning. The vehicle was later recovered nearby, according to police. 

Police were spotted on scene for several hours on Wednesday, with caution tape in place. At least one bullet hole was spotted in a window in the area.

While the police investigation continued, neighbors shared their reactions.

“I’m shocked,” one person said. “It’s pretty peaceful up here.”

Concerned resident Sheila Galvin said she works nights. 

“Coming home at night, it will make me feel uneasy coming in here wondering what’s going on,” Galvin said.

The Burlington Police Department said it believes this was a targeted act that does not pose an ongoing threat.

7NEWS reached out to Avalon management following Wednesday morning’s incident. Management responded, ordering a 7NEWS crew off its property before saying they have no comment.
