On September 17, 2020, at approximately 2:54 p.m., an East Precinct officer was in the area of the 8200 block of Southeast Powell Boulevard when they heard gunshots nearby. It was learned the gunshots were coming from occupants of two separate vehicles that were firing at one another.

Both of the vehicles fled the area and one of the vehicles was later located near the 11800 block of Southeast Flavel Boulevard. The vehicle that was located at this location had been shot and the driver's side window was damaged. Two of the occupants from inside of the vehicle fled as officers arrived at the location, however, were later located and detained. One of the occupants has minor injuries due to gunfire.

The other vehicle involved in the incident is still outstanding.
