Shots fired in busy Minden neighborhood

Staff Report

Minden Police are still trying to piece together the mystery behind a “shots fired” call that took place Tuesday. 

“We’ve located who we believe was the person being shot at, but the investigation is ongoing,” said Minden Police Chief Steve Cropper. “No arrests have been made in reference to the shooting.” 

Minden Police Association reported the call came in at approximately 3:30 p.m. October 26. The shooting between multiple vehicles occurred at the intersection of Carolina and Jackson streets. Several high powered rifle spent casings were reportedly collected. 

According to the report, multiple witnesses and children were in the area, and one resident had several bullets enter their house and lodge in the refrigerator. Information was provided that eventually led to the location of a vehicle on Elm St. It reportedly had multiple bullet holes in it from the shooting. 

“The area where this shooting occurred was near a heavily populated area as well as two schools,” MPA President Jason Smith wrote on Facebook. “The perpetrators had an obvious disregard for human life.”

Limited details are being provided as this is an ongoing investigation. 

“We at the MPA ask only one thing,” Smith wrote. “If you see something, say something.”
