Oswego Police continue to investigate a shooting that ended with a bullet found in a resident's closet earlier this month. 

Police are now asking anyone with information regarding the incident to call the Investigations Division at 630-551-7300.

"Police have canvassed and searched the area, however have recovered no evidence or possible leads," said Cathy Nevara, Media Relations Officer.

Police reported June 1 that a Prescott Mill resident in the 200 block of Foster Drive found a bullet in an upstairs closet after shots were fired in the early morning hours of May 31. 

Since the shooting, police said they have spoken to four area residents who said they heard gunshots in the middle of the night.

Police said they found a bullet hole in the back of the home, and it’s believed it was shot from Wolf’s Crossing Road. 

This incident occurred about five months after shots were also fired in the area in the early morning hours of Feb. 8. No homes were hit in that incident, and police said they believed the shooter was aiming at a coyote. 

In that case, several shell casings were found along the shoulder of Wolf’s Crossing. Both incidents occurred within a few hundred feet of each other.
