A bullet hole visible in the window of Amy Martin’s Buck Street home in Bangor. She was one of two people in the Fairmount neighborhood to report BB gun holes in their living room window on April 10.

The windows of two homes in Bangor’s Fairmount neighborhood were shot with an air gun on Tuesday night, police said.

Police responded to two reports of broken windows just before 9 p.m. Tuesday, said Sgt. Wade Betters.

“Police believe the crack and the hole[s] are consistent with the window being shot with a BB gun or a small pellet gun,” Betters said.

A Buck Street resident called the police at 8:41 p.m. to report what looked like a bullet hole in her street-facing living room window. Fifteen minutes later, a 15th Street resident who lives about a mile away also called to report three circular, cracked holes in her living room window, he said.

The window of a GMC pickup truck parked on Buck Street also had a small hole and was cracked extensively, according to the owner, who did not want to be identified and said he didn’t report the damage to police.

Two young men were spotted driving a gold car away from the 15th Street house just after the shooting occurred, Betters said. After hearing the shots, a man inside the house tried to chase after the car, but it got away, he said.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact Officer Zach Carey, at (207) 947-7384 ext. 5761.
