The Ypsilanti Police Department said there are no fatalities regarding shots fired near Cross and Ballard Streets.

At approximately 1:20 this morning a YPD dispatcher said he could not give any further information. However, he said a press release should be issue later this morning.

The incident was reported to the Citizen Friday evening, when an Ypsilanti resident said she heard gun shots before seeing Ypsilanti Police tape off a section of West Cross Street this evening.

Gretchen Cavanaugh said she was walking her dog near her home on North Hamilton Street, north of Cross Street, when she heard what sounded like four gun shots from the west.

A few minutes later she said she heard sirens.

Cavanaugh said she saw the Ypsilanti Police Department’s investigation scene as soon as she turned west onto Cross Street.

“I could see police tape and three or four police cars,” she said. “They were already interviewing people.”

At 7:30 p.m., police at the scene, near the southeast corner of Cross and Ballard streets, said they could not comment on the situation as the matter was still under investigation.
