Damage resulting from an unknown person or persons shooting the City Hall building in Hendricks was discovered Saturday morning by City Administrator David Blees.
Blees said he arrived at City Hall around 7:30 a.m. Monday with plans to get some work done. The condition of the office was not, however, as he had left it. “There was dust all over the place,” said Blees. Looking around, he then noticed the front doors had been shattered. After notifying the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department of the vandalism, he then, being careful not to disturb anything, went out the back door around to the front of the building to examine the damage. It was then he noticed the bullet holes in the front door.
