Oak Ridge Police Department officers responded to a complaint of gunfire in the 200 block of South Benedict Avenue at about 10:06 p.m. Saturday, April 25, authorities said. But when they arrived, officers were unable to locate any suspects, victims, or witnesses, a press release said.
Officers canvassed the area to locate witnesses and checked on the welfare of numerous occupants of nearby dwellings; however, no personal injuries or property damages were found or reported, the press release said.
“All those interviewed claimed to have neither heard nor seen anything,” the release said. “Investigating officers located and collected several spent shell casings apparently fired from a small-caliber handgun that were laying in the street near the location of the reported gunfire.”
The release said anyone with any information regarding this incident should contact the city’s dispatch non-emergency line at (865) 425-4399.
