Police in Olympia say there was no shooting at a west Olympia bar Friday night despite initial reports.
The incident brought a heavy police presence to The Westside Tavern on Harrison Avenue Northwest at about 9:45 p.m.
No injuries were reported but there was damage to the building, including a broken window on the side of the bar that faces an alley.
Police initially called the incident a drive-by shooting but later tweeted investigators “believe the damage was actually caused by something other than bullets or projectiles.”

No arrests had been made as of noon Saturday, according to police Lt. Sam Costello.
Chelsea Snow, who was in the bar at the time, said she thought she heard three bangs.
“Somebody yelled ‘gunshots’ and then everybody hit the floor,” she said.
