Officers investigate early morning shootout

No one was injured during an early morning shootout on Boren Av.

On 03-29-14, just shortly before 4:00 a.m., a shots fired call at 1930 Boren Av (KC Sobering center) was broadcast. Initial reports were of a suspect armed and outside of the sobering center. These reports described a subject and direction of travel.

Officers quickly surrounded this subject and took him into custody. This subject was not armed and said he was outside the center and fled when he heard the shots. He was identified and released. Other witness’ said that two vehicles were seen shooting at each other on Boren Avenue south of the sobering center.

Evidence appears to support this version of events. Varying reports seem to conclude that one vehicle was a Black SUV and another was a white sedan, unknown makes and models. Last known direction of travel was towards the freeway on ramp on Yale Avenue.

Officers recovered fifteen shell casings along Boren Avenue from Stewart to Howell St. Seven 9mm shell casings were located along Stewart St. from Boren Ave. Approximately 3 bullet holes were found in plywood construction sheeting at the SW corner of Boren Ave and Stewart St.

Officers then canvased the apartment building west of the construction site and located a second floor window that had been hit by a bullet. Officers contacted the resident of apartment. The resident was unharmed but the bullet strike pierced two panes of glass and the window shade. It then continued and entered an interior wall without exiting.
