Two people are being detained by Joplin Police today after neighbors heard an argument and what they thought were gunshots at 716 W. 9th Street this morning.
Information was received from a person not at the residence that there was an issue at this location between a male and female. The caller also advised the male had discharged a firearm inside the residence.
Officers arrived on scene and could hear what sounded like an argument inside. Due to the information about possible gunshots a perimeter was set, and officers began using a loud hailer to get those involved with the address to exit.
A female and male both exited and were detained. Joplin Police Detectives are on scene conducting an investigation.
