Gunshot noise really fireworks

F.T. Norton

Pyrotechnics used for training at the Carson City Fire station on College Parkway is likely the source of what many callers are reporting as gunshots.

Carson City 911 dispatchers received several calls moments ago that upwards of 10 gunshot rounds were heard in the area of the freeway off Highway 50 East.

Responding deputies reported that the fire department is using fireworks in a training exercise.
