Police said five people were shot — none has a life-threatening wound — when someone opened fire on a group of people standing outside a home at 2111 Bragg Street about 10:45 p.m. last night.

A police release said Whitney Lewis, 29; Natasha Stewart, 34; Shawn Adams, 47, and Fred Duhart, 38, were wounded when someone opened fire from an unknown location as they stood outside. A fifth person, Vashon Dukes, 18, was found nearby with a graze wound to the leg. Two children at the scene apparently weren't hurt.

Officers said a black Ford Crown Victoria belonging to Duhart had  several bullet strikes in the driver's side rear door. Bullet holes also were found in a Honda Civic and a Cadillac El Dorado.

Duhart had wounds to his shoulder and back. Lewis was shot in both legs. Shawn Adams, who officers found inside Duhart's Ford,  was able to tell officers a suspect wore a hoodie, but couldn't supply further information. Adams was shot in the right leg. Natasha Stewart was shot in the buttocks. All four were admitted to a hospital.

No indication about the underlying motives.

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
