Police knock on the door, loudly announce themselves as law enforcement and yell to the occupants to come to the door. Then, a plain-clothes officer uses a battering ram to bring down the door.

After cops enter, a single gunshot is heard. Then, roughly 20 seconds later, a rapid succession of gunshots ring out from inside the apartment.

According to a statement on social media, Casper police were called to the residence early Friday following a reported kidnapping. Police say a woman was being held at gunpoint against her will.

No officers were hurt in the shootout.
