ARVADA, Colo. (KDVR) — Officers working a football game at an Arvada athletics complex Friday night heard gunshots nearby, although no injuries were reported.

Officers who were working the game reported hearing four possible gun shots around 8:30 p.m. to the west of the North Area Athletic Complex stadium, outside of the parking lot, according to Arvada Police Department Det. Dave Snelling.

Officers went to check it out and found a couple of witnesses who said there might have been one person who shot out of a vehicle, but it’s unclear whether they were aiming at anyone or anything, Snelling said.
