Police tape is up in Fleetwood. NEWS 1130’s Adam Forsyth was at 153A and 80th Avenue where he says two cars exchanged fire.

“Several people were saying that it was two cars racing down the street, and then turnign right on to 153A, and then kind of disappeared at that point,” he said. “There’s about five or six cones with chalk lines on the outside, so I can only assume those are probably bullet casings at this point. No cars within the tape and no injuries and no ambulances, nothing like that, but there are several emergency vehicles down here.”
