Around 3:38 AM witnesses on the scene reported hearing loud noises, which could have been the sound of gunshots. A short time later 14th Street from Dakota Avenue to Minnesota Avenue was briefly closed as a result of the police activity.

According to Dakota News Now, the front door of the Get-n-Go store has a pane of broken glass, which allegedly could be the result of gunfire.
