APD is seeking assistance from public

Press release from the Asheville Police Department:

Asheville Police Department is investigating gun discharges in a West Asheville community that caused damage to two vehicles and one apartment Friday afternoon; fortunately, there were no reports of injuries.

APD Patrol Officers responded to the 200 block of Deaverview Road just after 6 p.m. on Oct. 21 to investigate reports of gun discharges.  When officers arrived, they found  two vehicles with a single bullet hole in the windows; the vehicles were unoccupied, and no one was reported injured.

Officers also found an apartment house with a single bullet hole through the front door and into the living room wall.  Fortunately, no one was reported injured as well.

This is the 112th confirmed instance of shots fired in 2022. So far this year, officers and forensic technicians have recovered 620 shell casings from these crime scenes.

Detectives are asking if anyone has any information about this case to send an anonymous tip by texting TIP2APD to 847411 or using the TIP2APD smartphone application (search “Asheville PD” in your app store).  You can also contact APD at (828) 252-1110.
