Brooklyn Park Police: 1 in custody after shots fired call turns into crash

The Brooklyn Park Police Department has arrested one person after officers heard several gunshots fired near the 5800 block of 73rd Avenue Tuesday night, according to a public safety alert.

Police say they went to the area and saw two vehicles speeding away sometime around 6:30 p.m.

Officers also found several spent bullet casings in the street.

Nearby, police found a crashed car they believed to be involved in the incident. They say the occupants ran from the scene.

Police found a gun and arrested one person after someone who they refer to as an “observant resident” brought the suspect vehicle to officers’ attention, and pointed police to a gun that was dropped in a neighbor’s yard.

No victims or property damage was found. Police are investigating.
