Melbourne police are investigating reports of shots fired Tuesday evening in the 1300 block of East University Boulevard in Melbourne.
Around 7 p.m. Tuesday evening, a number of shots were fired in the parking lot of Lizzy’s restaurant and in an area south of restaurant, according to reports.
“It does appear there was multiple shooters, multiple different types of guns,” said Lt. Shawn Eising, a spokesperson for the Melbourne PD.
Police say there is no evidence anyone was shot at this time but one person was taken to the hospital with incidental injuries resulting from possible shrapnel or glass.
“We are seeking help through the community to find out who might have done this,” Eising said.
