ST. GEORGE – Police are asking for help in identifying those responsible for a drive-by shooting that happened in St. George on Monday evening.

The incident happened on April 4 at approximately 9:30 p.m. when police received a report of gunshots near West Rio Virgin Drive, according to a news release issued by the St. George Police Department Monday evening. No injuries were reported, police said.

Upon arrival, officers said they met with the homeowners, including a woman who said she "heard an explosion above her head" while seated in her living room. The woman told police that she found a hole in the wall "about 3 feet from where she was sitting," with the hole appearing to "be from a bullet," the release said.

Responding officers were able to confirm that the hole in the wall was caused by a bullet, which they located in a kitchen cabinet door.

Witnesses told police that the shots were fired from East Brigham Road across the Santa Clara River, and police said they later found shell casings in that area.

Surveillance video from a home's doorbell camera was also released by police on Monday. In the video sounds of gunshots are heard, then a car with a loud muffler is seen driving away.

Police said the video is being released "in an effort to locate the driver and/or owner of the vehicle." They are asking anyone who has information on this vehicle to call them at 435-627-4300.

Correction: An earlier version incorrectly reported the date of the shooting as April 2 instead of April 4
