TROUP, TX (KLTV) - Troup Police say a neighborhood is on edge after a past incident where random gunshots were reported in the immediate area.

Late Wednesday night, police say they were called back to the same neighborhood where a shots fired call was reported last week. Upon arriving at the area where the caller claimed the gunfire was coming from, officers located a home construction project where a nailgun was being used.

After searching the surrounding neighborhood, police say the nailgun was believed to have been the cause of the sounds prompting the report of gunshots.
