A home invasion led to the investigation of two suspicious items near Prince and Flowing Wells on Thursday.
At around 11:30 Thursday morning police received a call reporting a home invasion in the 1300 block of W. Prince according to Sgt. Kimberly Bay with the Tucson Police Department.
A group of at least three suspects entered the home and engaged the resident of the home in a physical altercation.
The fight spilled outside into traffic on Prince Road.
During the fight, a shot was fired. No one appears to have been hit by the shot at this time.
The suspects fled before police arrived on scene.
When cops arrived they found a device that appeared to be a grenade. That investigation is what caused the initial road closure.

The grenade like item was not found at the grocery store. That was just used as a point of reference.
While the bomb squad was investigating the first suspicious item, someone dropped a bag off at a nearby Walgreens.
Bomb squad team members then went and checked that out and detonated the bag with a robot.
