Correction: The original release indicated 45 casings were located. It was later learned that was the caliber of one of the casings, not the number of casings located. The release has been updated to reflect this change. We regret the error.

Updated release below:

On July 8, 2020, at 10:27 p.m., East Precinct Officers responded to numerous reports of shots heard near Southeast 148th Avenue just South of E Burnside Street. One caller reported being injured by gunfire.
