HPD Assistant Chief Troy Finner addressed on Thursday afternoon what was originally described as shots fired at the department's Northeast Patrol Station on Ley Road near E. Houston Road.
Finner said the officers heard the shots at about 9:52 a.m. just a block away on Furray Road.
When the officers responded to that area, they found multiple young males who then started running away, Finner said. At least one of those males was detained, but was later released after police determined that he was not involved.
Finner added no officers were injured and there was no damage to the station.
