Cleveland Police are investigating an incident that occurred Thursday morning of shots being fired.
According to information from Capt. Stacy Smith of the Cleveland Police Department released to the Cleveland Daily Banner late Friday morning, the incident occurred just after midnight Thursday morning, with officers responding to shots being fired in the area of 675 14th St. N.W.
Through information released by Smith by Cleveland Police Public Information Officer Sgt. Evie West, “a large gathering of some type was taking place at the address when a fight broke out. Officers attempted to interview multiple witnesses, who were located outside of the residence, but were uncooperative.
There were injuries reported at the scene, but possibly from the fight that broke out, as they were said by police not to be related to gunfire. The injuries, treated by the Bradley County Emergency Medical Service, were minor, Cleveland Police reported.
No names have yet been released who might have been at the home, as some were said to be juveniles, and investigators from the Criminal Investigations Division have been conducting follow-up investigation into the incident.
West said anyone with information regarding this crime or individuals involved should contact Lt. Dean Beverly at 423-559-3324.

The Bradley County Sheriff’s Office was the top department in the state in total cases cleared for counties of 100,000 or more, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, and that accomplishment was celebrated at a special luncheon at the Bradley County Justice Center Friday.
The department was also recognized for reporting a 65.15 percent crime solvability rate, which is far above the state average of 40.13 percent. The BCSO was also acknowledged for being No. 7 in Tennessee counties for total offenses cleared.
Though the TBI Crime Report was released in April, this was the first opportunity to stage this type of celebration.
Those who attended the event applauded when they heard the statistics the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office proudly announced. Bradley County Sheriff Eric Watson said he was so pleased at the numbers shown in the TBI report.
Watson expressed his pride with the department for getting behind his wishes for the sheriff’s department when he took office.
