Note: GRPD Public Information Officer Jamie Green sent out a correction regarding gunfire reports on the evening of Oct. 4.

Green initially reported about an incident involving an abandoned car and individuals shooting an Airsoft pistol or firearm at approximately 7:10 p.m. However, at approximately 7:19 p.m., officers also responded to a separate incident report of shots fired. While on scene, officers observed a window that appeared to have been shot out. Officers conducted a canvas of the area to ensure there was not an active threat to the community, but did not locate anyone in the area. Officers gathered information and detectives were called to the scene.

The two separate incident reports are not related. Due to the close timing of the incidents, it was a miscommunication that information on only one of the two incidents was reported by Green. This was a mistake and the GRPD apologized for any confusion or concern that it caused.

This second case is still under active investigation. If anyone has information they are asked to call Detective Fischer at 307-872-6167 or email at rfischer@cityofgreenriver.org.
