Bullet holes found in homes in two different towns

HOLLIS (WGME) -- Bullet holes were found in homes in two different towns Friday.

Right now, two men are behind bars, arrested for one of the incidents.

Police say late Thursday night, someone started firing shots at homes along Route 237 in Gorham.

Gorham police say two homes along Route 237 were damaged by gunfire.

About an hour later, less than 15 miles away, two York County deputies were at a variety store in Hollis when they heard gun shots nearby.

Minutes later, deputies say Chad Palmer and Mark O'Brien pulled up to the variety store.

They said the men had been drinking and suspected they were responsible for the gunshots.

When they searched Palmer and O'Brien, police say they found a handgun and several boxes of ammunition.

Palmer faces OUI and gun charges.

O'Brien faces gun charges.

Right now, detectives are working to figure out if the two cases are related.

If you suspect your home was damaged by gunfire Thursday night or Friday morning, police want to hear from you.
