MASON CITY – Shots may have been fired Sunday night near a Mason City hotel that has it’s share of police visits, leading to an investigation.
Police tell NIT that Sunday night at 8:27 PM, there was a report of shots fired outside the America’s Best Value Inn, located at 24 5th Street SW. Police converged on the scene, and a number of people saw them with flashlights, searching the area.
According to a spokesman, “police spoke to people who reported hearing possible gunshots but there were no direct eye-witnesses and no victim. No evidence was located at the scene.”
