The incident occurred around 5:50 pm on December 11 at a residence in the 1500 block of S. 25th Street. When making entry into the residence, an occupant fired four shots through a wall nearly striking officers who were positioned outside. No shots were fired by any of the officers, however one officer was hit by debris but wasn’t seriously injured.
