Sheriff’s Office deputies responding to a 911 call about shots fired outside of a Pine Hurst Lane home July 7 arrived to find conflicting stories and witness unwilling to talk, and weren’t able to establish probable cause for an arrest. No one was hurt.

The 911 call came in at about 6:14 p.m.

A woman whose daughter owned a home on Pine Hurst Lane told Deputy Jacob West that two people at the house were arguing, and a man who’d had a child with her granddaughter and lived nearby walked over to break up the fight, according to West's case report on the incident.

Then the caller's granddaughter’s current boyfriend, she said, got into an argument with the other man, and two other males “came out of nowhere,” one of them with a handgun.

She told the deputy she heard three gunshots, and people ran in opposite directions.

The man the 911 caller said had intervened to break up the fight and who had a child with her granddaughter told deputies he had not been involved.

He told West he’d been on the back porch the whole time with his kids, and that although he’d heard the gunshots, he hadn’t seen anyone in the area.

Several other witnesses contradicted him, saying they saw him on the property where the shooting happened, and that two other men had come with him. The 911 caller’s granddaughter’s boyfriend also said the other man had been there and that they’d argued. But he said he hadn’t heard any gunshots.

Other people at the scene told deputies they had heard gunshots.

“At this time there is no probable cause to make an arrest, and parties involved are mostly uncooperative,” West wrote in the case report.
