Williamsburg, Va. - A neighborhood on Druid Street is shaken up after a scary weekend. Residents tell NewsChannel 3 they heard several shots in front of that home late Friday night.

Bullet shells and blood were found, but still no victim, according to police.

It all started late Friday night when several neighbors called officers after hearing shots on the residential road.

Neighbors tell us cars began lining both sides of the street at 10 that night.

“I heard a bunch of sounds, there were a ton of cars, really hard to find a place to park. There were a couple houses open and music blaring, the smell of marijuana debauchery was high in the air and I didn't think much of it because there's a college home down the road,” says Josh Trevillian.

That college house is rented out by three William & Mary football players and one former player, according to the landlady Sarah Smith.

“They've been good. They've had manners, they kept the house clean, their parents are caring people,” says Smith.

NewsChannel 3 talked to the former football player, who still attends the college. Off-camera he tells us he was throwing a small birthday party and more and more people started to show up.

He estimated that at one point there were about 70 people at the two-story home and that's when he began kicking them out. He then heard arguing and gunfire.

There's been some parties, a lot of people, but the other night it was very dangerous.

Police tell NewsChannel 3 when they got to the scene, they found several shell casings and blood on the road but no victim.

Officers checked local hospitals, but no one checked in with a bullet wound.

Now this quiet neighborhood is still on edge.
