Des Moines police officers were called to the area along 51st Street, just south of Urbandale Avenue, shortly after 10:00 p.m. Residents told police they heard several gunshots.

Police say a bullet went through the front window of a home, through a couch, and became embedded in a wall. A woman who was sitting on the couch at the time of the shooting was not injured.

A man inside the home told investigators the shooting was in retaliation for a fight he had been in the night before.

Police have not released the names of any suspects in the shooting.
