Multiple callers notified Napa Dispatch of individuals purportedly chasing an individual walking their dog, followed by the sound of two gunshots.

Upon arrival at the scene, officers discovered two spent shell casings and one live round of ammunition on the ground. Fortunately, no injuries were reported as a result of the shooting, however the suspects had fled the area prior to the arrival of law enforcement personnel.
