Police: At least three shots fired outside Rochester home

Police: At least three shots fired outside Rochester home

Multiple shots were fired early Sunday morning outside a home just a few blocks north of downtown Rochester.

The shooting was reported just after 1 a.m. near the intersection of 9th Street NW and North Broadway Avenue. A preliminary investigation indicates at least three shots were fired, "potentially from two different guns." One of the bullets went through the home's window.

According to the police report, a large group of people fled the scene when officers arrived. Authorities were able to track down a few of the runners, but each claimed not to know anything about the shooting.

Police said the home's occupants were also uncooperative and began "hiding" when officers knocked on the door. They eventually kicked the door down.

Officers had been called to the home two times the same night for noise complaints. Police said they shut the party down after the second call, about an hour before shots went off.

As of Monday morning, there are no suspects in custody. Police believe the shooting happened following an altercation between two people. A small white car was seen fleeing the scene after the shots went off.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers of Rochester & Olmsted County at 1-800-222-TIPS. You can remain anonymous.

Correction: A previous version of this article stated the incident happened at the intersection of 14th Street and North Broadway. It was, in fact, 9th Street. The location on the map below was correct all along.
