The Monroe Police Department responded to a “shots fired” complaint at Kingsway Apartments. Three or four people entered the roadway as police units approached the apartment complex and began firing shots at them. A bullet struck one of the Monroe Police Department units, but no one was injured.

Any crime perpetrated in the city is unacceptable. When criminals take aim at innocent citizens or our first responders, they will be held accountable. We will find the cowards responsible for this morning’s attack.
