UPDATE: 6:15 a.m. - Wyoming Public Safety said when they responded to the domestic incident, two officers discharged their guns. Once again, no one was hit by the bullets.

Then there was a brief standoff, which caused the "shelter in place" order, according to police, but that is now lifted.

The Kent County Sheriff's Office is now handling the investigation. The officers involved have been placed on paid administrative leave, which is protocol when they fire their weapon.


UPDATE: 4:45 a.m. - Wyoming Public Safety's Public Information Officer, Lieutenant Tim Pols, said an officer fired shots during the incident.

He told Newschannel 3 this started as a domestic dispute shortly after 1 a.m. Wednesday.

Lt. Pols said Wyoming officers were called in, and shots were fired. He could not say who fired shots, but confirms an officer did discharge his weapon.

No one was injured and police said no bullets actually hit anyone.

Right now there are multiple people in custody facing questioning.

The investigation is being turned over to the Kent County Sheriff's Office.
