Officers responding to a ShotSpotter call in Uniondale late Tuesday found shell casings on the ground, but were unable to find the shooter -- or shooters.

Nassau County police said the casings were found on Adams Street and Nassau Road by First Precinct patrol officers responding to a ShotSpotter notification on Nassau Road at 10:25 p.m. No property damage or injuries were reported.

A canvass of the area found a witness who "reported hearing a group of males arguing" before hearing "several shots in the area," police said.
