Denton police were investigating a shooting in the 1700 block of South Loop 288 following a call around 4:19 p.m. Tuesday, a department spokesperson said.

Spokesperson Amy Cunningham said a 911 caller told police there was a person with a gun in the area. Dispatch received more calls about a gunshot while officers were en route.

One caller reported a vehicle was struck by gunfire at RaceTrac by South Loop 288 and Brinker Road. Cunningham said a suspect fired one gunshot at a non-involved vehicle before fleeing, but police don't believe the suspect is a threat to the public.

No injuries have been reported.
