The SBI is helping to analyze evidence found after four buildings, including the Pamlico County Courthouse, were hit by gunfire.
Damage to the courthouse, the Bayboro town hall, and Little Italy Pizza and Subs in Alliance were discovered Monday morning. Habitat for Humanity of Pamlico County then found gunshots in their building this morning.
Sheriff deputies says several shots hit each building, while no one was injured. At least two bullets went through windows in the west wing of the courthouse.
Authorities believe all four cases are related and say they have suspects in mind, but so far no one has been arrested.
The vandalism was discovered the same day a fake bomb was found outside the Wayne County Courthouse in Goldsboro.
