Most police left the scene at around 7:30 p.m., with a few staying behind to investigate the scene.

Despite rumors online, Millcreek Police say no officers were injured, issuing the following statement: 

"This afternoon, MPD assisted Homeland Security Investigations tactical officers with the service of a search warrant in the area of W. 12 St./Oregon Ave.

We are aware of social media posts that a police officer may have been shot. These posts are not accurate.
Because the investigation is that of another agency, we are not able to comment further on the details of the search warrant.
As always, the public is reminded to follow this page for accurate information concerning the Millcreek Police Department."
