Four blasts echoed through Ames 30 minutes before midnight on Saturday, March 9. The noise fired from the barrel of a revolver during a disagreement between two minors in the parking lot of Zeke’s, less than a mile west of campus on Lincoln Way. The shots were heard by Ames Police officers who “observed several people fighting in the parking lot and running from the area,” according to a press release from the Ames Police Department. After interviewing people at the scene, officers took the minors to juvenile court for carrying a concealed weapon, reckless use of a firearm and disorderly conduct. Ames Police Investigations Commander Geoff Huff says that the shots weren’t fired at anyone in particular and no injuries were reported.
