According to Chico police, the first shooting happened just after 7:30 p.m. Friday in the 600 block of West First Avenue.

Once officers arrived at the location they found evidence suggesting a shooting took place, but officers were unable to locate any victims or suspects.

Officers did learn that a black colored sedan was seen fleeing the area immediately after the shooting at West First Avenue, according to CPD.

Hours later, just before 1 a.m. Saturday, CPD said that officers responded to the 400 block of Ash Street on reports of shots seen inside an apartment.

Officers then surrounded the apartment complex, where a specific apartment was identified to be the location of the shooting and all the occupants inside came out and were detained without incident, according to CPD.

Officers then learned a party was held inside the apartment and a fight broke out which caused one person to pull out a handgun and fire a single round into the apartment.

Luckily no one was struck by gunfire, but the suspect fled the area, according to CPD.

The investigations are still active and on-going, anyone with information is asked to contact CPD at (530)-897-4900.
