FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) — Police are investigating after shots were fired from a vehicle Thursday (Sept. 5) night near Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.

No one was injured and police believe the shots followed a disturbance at Stone Street and Cross Avenue around 8:05 p.m., according to Sgt. Anthony Murphy, spokesman for Fayetteville police.

Murphy said the incident may have resulted from a dispute over a vehicle. One vehicle began chasing another around Stone Street and Lewis Avenue, with shots being fired near Mitchell Avenue.

The chase continued down Lewis to MLK Boulevard, where it ended near Sang Avenue.

Police said one vehicle was chasing the other, but it's unclear from which vehicle the shots were fired.

Murphy said the case is still under investigation.

University of Arkansas police tweeted that there was no threat of a shooter on campus.
