UPDATE: Farmington Public Safety investigates Zap Zone shooting report

Farmington Public Safety is investigating the report of a shooting at Zap Zone, an indoor amusement center at Grand River and Mooney Street.

Officers who arrived at around 8:20 p.m. found no victims and no evidence that anyone had been hit by gunfire. According to a Nixle.com alert, the incident stemmed from “an altercation between two groups inside the business”.

Shots were fired outside the building, prompting multiple 9-1-1 calls. Public Safety Director Ted Warthman said about 50-75 people were inside when police arrived.

Warthman said while detectives continue to review surveillance tapes, it’s a difficult investigation. For example, he said, they had hoped to trace one victim through credit card receipts, but learned the person paid with cash.

From the tapes, Warthman said, it’s clear that a victim was targeted.

Six men drove away, heading east in a black Dodge Ram pick-up truck. If you have information, call Farmington Public Safety, 248-474-4700.
