Officers went to the residence on Osprey and spoke with a male resident.  The resident stated Sanders, with whom he had a prior dating relationship, came to his home and began causing a disturbance and destroying property.  The resident then stated Sanders ran to a white car and began driving away.  As Sanders was fleeing, the resident stated he heard gunshots and took cover to avoid being struck.  The resident stated he did not see who was shooting at Sanders.
