Several people have been detained at multiple locations after reports of shots fired in a west Phoenix neighborhood, according to police.

Sgt. Jonathan Howard said officers were initially called to a scene at 83rd Avenue and McDowell Road Monday afternoon after receiving reports of gunshots.

Footage from the scene showed multiple police units stationed in the parking lot of the Siegel Suites complex.

Police said they believe someone got a gun as a Christmas gift, then fired off rounds in the parking lot. People reportedly scattered and fled into the complex. No injuries have been reported, according to police.

Officers are trying to sort out who pulled the trigger, police told ABC15 crews at the scene.

Police later pulled over an SUV near 75th and Virginia avenues that they believe might be connected to the initial shots fired call.

Officials have detained several people and are continuing to investigate.
