The fight night speculation turns out to be more than just talk.

The chatter on fight night Saturday turns out to be based on more than rampant speculation.

Whether it was a rapper vs rapper crew beef or what is unclear, but the talk of a firearm discharge inside the Barclays Center turns out to be truth-based.

I reached out to NYPD media relations, via email, a little after 2:30 PM ET on Sunday.

Can I get info on any gunfire inside and/or outside Barclays Center Saturday night, I asked. Also, was someone detained in the arena, who was in possession of a firearm? Any details, to help me clarify and clean up rumors, is appreciated.

The reply arrived after 5 PM ET on Sunday.

“On Saturday, inside of 620 Atlantic Avenue at 2108 hours there is a report of Reckless Endangerment. An unknown suspect did discharge a firearm in a hallway at the location causing property damage. There are no arrests and the investigation is ongoing.”
