Officers responded to a report of gunshots just after 2 p.m. Monday in the area of Brunswick Street and Melvin Avenue.

Police say those involved took off before officers arrived on the scene but they did manage to secure a black Subaru SUV and shell casings.

Investigators say they have no evidence to support anyone was injured.
