The Fort Dodge Police Dept. released a statement regarding a shooting incident that occurred Thursday afternoon. The statement said that around 1:30 PM Webster County Dispatch Center got multiple calls in regards to shots fired in the 600 block of North 22nd Street. According to report there were possibly 5 to 10 shots fired. Officers arrived on scene and began investigating. Witnesses told officers that two individuals were seen in the area and one of them was allegedly handling a handgun just prior to shots being fired. Immediately after shots rang out those individuals reportedly left the area headed south. The only available description was they were 2 African-American males in dark clothing. A search of the surrounding area did not turn up any suspects matching the description. Due to the close proximity to several schools and having 2 suspects at large , law enforcement decided to advise schools in the area to go into “lockout” precautions. Fort Dodge Senior High, St. Edmond Schools, Cooper and Duncombe Elementary schools all  all adopted the “lockout” protocol and were in it for about 45 minutes. No injuries were reported in the shooting but one vehicle was damaged during the incident. The Suspects remain at large as of the time of this report. Police are asking anyone with knowledge of the incident to contact The Fort Dodge Police dept.
