STAMFORD - Stamford police are searching for a group of men involved in a shootout.

Police say an apartment on Myano Lane was shot at around 5 p.m. Sunday and has been the target of gunfire before. They say the apartment has also been raided for drugs.

Officers found marijuana inside the apartment, some of it packaged for sale, as well as five shell casings outside the home.

The gunfire blew out the windshield of a car driving down the street, as well as the tire of a parked car.

Another bullet went through an apartment window and through a television. No one was hurt.

Lisa Lewis lives in the area and says she's had enough with all the violence. She says there were several nearby shootings over the winter.

Police say they will be stepping up patrols in the area.
