A portion of College Avenue in Waterville had been sealed off since Tuesday afternoon by police who said they were originally called to the area on a report of shots fired. No injuries were reported, according to the Morning Sentinel.

Several residents called 911 and reported hearing shots fired at 50 College Ave. at about 4:15 p.m, but police found no gunman there. Officers expanded the search to a vacant house at or near 150 College Ave, where several shots were heard. As of 9 p.m., police said they had the area “contained” ― Congress was blocked at Hazelwood Avenue and Highwood Street and motorists were directed elsewhere, the Morning Sentinel reported.
