Standoff with Winona police ends; cause still unclear

{{featured_button_text}}
Shots fired 2/16/20

Shots were reported to have been fired in the area of Fourth and High Forest streets Saturday, resulting in a police stand-off that is said to have lasted almost five hours 

A police standoff in a Winona neighborhood that reportedly lasted several hours Saturday evening could be the result of multiple shots fired, but neighbors have differing views of what happened.

Spectators in the area of Fourth and High Forest streets say a shot was fired after 6 p.m., but others in the area report that they did not hear anything. Police were called and shots were fired at officers. By 11 p.m., at least five police squad cars were blocking the intersection of the street.

Police were not available to comment on whether anyone was injured or what happened.

“Cops were out here for a good four or five hours trying to get in (before) they got in and brought three people out,” area resident Arzo Tureaud, III, said.

It is unclear whether the three people were taken into custody or just escorted from the premises.

By 11:30, police were seen leaving the area, with a few staying behind to check the house where the incident was reported, with a dispatcher from police saying everything in the area was safe.
