Police in Mandan are investigating reports of shots being fired in the city Monday evening.

NBC North Dakota News reported witnesses claiming to have heard shots fired around 7PM near the Tesoro gas station and Family Wellness Center at the corner of 46th Avenue SE and McKenzie Drive SE.

A police spokesman says they have no reports of injuries: “The police department received some calls of some possible gun shots in this area. Officers came down and responded. After a little bit of investigation they determined that there was a good possibility some shots were fired."

The area was secured until 10PM for collection of evidence. A hook-and-ladder from the fire department was also briefly on the scene.

No one was in custody as of mid-morning Tuesday. Police say they have reports of a would-be victim running away. A spokesman says there is no reason to believe there is any present danger to the public.

Anyone with information should contact Mandan Police.
