A shots fired call came in from a neighbor on Orchard Ave this morning, but then an SUV fled the scene, and was later stopped about 5 miles away, near Corn Lake.

The Mesa County Sheriff's Office says around 9:15 this morning, deputies and GJPD officers responded to the area of 28 3/4 Road and Orchard Avenue.

We talked to a neighbor who described hearing a loud bang, and shouting around that same time.

Several people were detained, after law enforcement blocked Orchard Avenue in front of the home, where it happened.

However, we're told a vehicle was seen leaving the scene, and deputies chased it down, and stopped it on 32 Road.

Charges in the case today have still not been determined, but four people were arrested later in the day on unrelated charges:
Two adults and one juvenile on outstanding warrants, and another adult was arrested off a parole violation.

Nisley and Rocky Mountain Elementary, and Bookcliff Middle School were put on a shelter-in-place, but were back to normal after about 30 minutes.
