A St. Cloud Police officer was patrolling downtown St. Cloud around 1:30 a.m. on March 1st, 2020 when he heard gunshots near the Centre Square parking ramp. Responding officers found six spent shell casings from a 9-millimeter gun and a bullet hole in a nearby car which was unoccupied.

Through surveillance video and interviews with witnesses, police determined Salters was the triggerman. However, the jury acquitted Salters of the crime earlier this month.
