Last night, at around 10:30, shortly after the power went out in Lakewood,  there was a large convergence of police cars, lights and sirens all fired up, at the Lakewood Walmart, and I heard officers shouting for someone to put their hands up several times. It sounded like they were also surrounding the building itself, although the majority of vehicles were gathered at the middle street entrance to the parking lot on Bridgeport.

According to Lakewood police Lt. Chris Lawler, a Lakewood police sergeant working Tuesday night saw an occupant of a car fire several gunshots from the vehicle. The shots were fired in the area of 75th and Bridgeport Way.

The sergeant got behind the vehicle and pulled it over in the Walmart parking lot. The officers conducted a felony stop on the car, which means they had their guns drawn.

Lakewood police booked three men into the jail on suspicion of drive-by shooting, unlawful possession of a firearm and driving with a suspended license.

Lakewood police report there were no reports of injuries or property damage from the shooting.
