DANVILLE, Va. (WFXR) – Police in Danville are investigating after a report of a shooting into an occupied residence.

According to Danville Police, the incident happened in the 100 block of North Avenue just after midnight Tuesday morning.

When police arrived, they found a house which was occupied at the time by two adults and two young children, had been shot into multiple times.
