More reports of celebratory gunfire, property damage in St. Pete

ST. PETERSBURG (FOX 13) -

Police say they've received three other reports of property damage from stray bullets on New Year's Eve – and they all came from the southside area of St. Petersburg.

One bullet hit a truck's windshield and ricocheted into a kichen window. Another went through a windshield, and a third bullet went through the hood of a car.

The most severe report, though, came from Laurie Eberhardt, a 67-year-old who was struck in the hand while she watched fireworks at the St. Pete Yacht Club.

Eberhardt had the bullet removed from her wrist and is now recovering.

Police said they've received dozens of reports of gunfire, but now property damage reports are trickling in.

Investigators are still looking for information on who did the shooting.
