MESA, AZ - Police responded quickly Sunday afternoon after hearing the sound of gunfire at a Mesa apartment complex.
Police spokesman Steve Berry said the incident happened around 12:30 p.m. near Gilbert Road and Main Street.
Berry said officers were talking to a man on a sidewalk when they thought they heard shots fired from a nearby apartment complex.
Officers shut down the complex while they searched the apartment they thought the shots were fired from.
Berry said officers found no one home, and no evidence of a shooting. Authorities said with so many officer involved shootings recently, they are taking every precaution.
Residents were allowed back into their homes around 4 p.m.
