After a second incident of gunshots being fired in the same neighborhood in a week, the Boulder Police Department is again asking for the public’s help to find the individual(s) responsible.

At approximately 4:46 a.m. today, Aug. 18, we received two calls for gunshots being fired in the 1800 block of Yarmouth Avenue. No one was injured and no damage was found. Officers responded to the area, but did not find the suspects. Detectives did recover several shell casings.

Surveillance video captured audio of the gunshots and may indicate that the suspect’s vehicle has an altered exhaust. You can listen to it here:

This is the second time gunshots have been fired in this neighborhood since Monday, Aug. 9 when officers received two calls about gunfire that occurred at 12:42 a.m. At least seven rounds were fired into four houses. No one was injured in that incident either, but two bullets entered a child’s room in one of the homes. Detectives are looking for anyone who may have witnessed this or was a victim of this crime.

Photos of the scene from the first incident are below.

Anyone who has any information about these two crimes is asked to call Detective S. Cantu at 303-441-4328 reference case 21-07001 or case 21-7347. Those who have information, but wish to remain anonymous may contact the Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). Tips may also be submitted through the Crime Stoppers website at
