NEWPORT NEWS -- Gunfire in Newport News Tuesday afternoon damaged a church and other property near 17th Street and Madison Avenue.

A bullet went through a window at New Love Center Church.

'It was like seven or eight shots,' said Kia Dabney, who took cover when she heard gunfire.

There are also reports of a parked car and two houses that were struck by bullets.

Five children reportedly live in one of the homes that was hit.

'Thank God they were at school because there was a chance one of the children could have been hit,' Dabney noted.

No one was injured and nobody has been arrested.
