Police investigate reports of ‘gun shots’ at The Caves

MULTIPLE police vehicles were spotted racing north out of Rockhampton on Saturday night responding to reports of a loud disturbance at The Caves involving several “gun shots”.

Police were alerted to the incident at a location about 25km north of Rockhampton at 9.20pm.

Upon arriving at the scene, police were understood to have questioned a number of witnesses and conducted a search of a house.

An officer at the scene said they were told by a witness that aerosol cans and lighters had been thrown into a fire.

A Queensland Police spokesperson confirmed that no shots were fired, blaming the noise on the incineration of the aerosols.
