Trailsway (at Freemont Ave.)


Several community members heard gunshots near the intersection of Fremont Ave. and Trailsway last night, with at least one hitting the floor as reports rang out. Responding officers located five spent shell casings at the entrance to an alleyway in the 1500 block of Trailsway. One witness heard, just prior to the gunfire, a man's voice saying, "Why are you following me?" There have been no reports of injuries, and officers did not immediately see any property damage.
