Geneva Shooting Today –A deputy from the Freeborn County Sheriff’s Office was summoned to the Geneva Bar and Grill at 12:50 a.m. on Saturday morning in response to an accusation of bullets being fired at an automobile. When the deputies arrived, a number of people were observed quickly fleeing to their cars and exiting the parking lot.
Deputies learned that an altercation had occurred inside the pub involving roughly ten people after speaking with other people who were still present. The dispute continued outside in the parking lot until one of the individuals involved walked to a vehicle and removed a firearm from inside. Following that, he fires two shots into the air. There were no reported injuries, according to officials.
The suspect then fled the scene on foot. A short time later, one of the vehicles that had just left the bar, a white GMC Sierra, came to a halt at the intersection of Central Avenue North and First Street Northeast to allow a pedestrian to cross. The man began firing at the truck as soon as he finished crossing the road and the truck began driving forward.
According to investigators, the truck driver heard four rounds fired and the sound of bullets striking his vehicle. The truck had two occupants, neither of whom was injured. According to the description, the suspect was a male wearing a white hooded sweatshirt and pants, and he sprinted south from the pub. The same person was involved in both the incident at the bar and the one reported by the truck driver.
According to the Freeborn County Sheriff’s Office, this was an isolated incident, and there is no immediate threat to the community. At this point, no arrests have been made as a result of the inquiry. If you have any information about this incident, please contact the Freeborn County Sheriff’s Office at 507-377-5200, option 5.
