3:54 PM PT -- Police officers encountered several juveniles who were "doing dart wars" when they initially arrived at Joe Mixon's neighborhood on Monday night ... new police audio, obtained by TMZ Sports, reveals.
In the clip -- which picked up parts of the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office's response to the reports of gunfire in Mixon's neighborhood -- you can hear what appears to be an officer saying, "It's juveniles. They're doing dart wars. Slow everyone down."
Cops, according to the audio, were first called out to the Cincinnati-area location after someone on the scene had alleged "several males and females" were "running at this location."
"They couldn't get a description," a law enforcement officer can be heard saying in the clip. "One of them pulled out a gun, ran toward the back of a building. Several shots were heard. A male with a gun was seen running, getting into a Jeep. He's currently still on scene. Two other vehicles are involved."
The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office said Monday morning an investigation into the matter is still ongoing. Further details surrounding the situation have yet to be released.
7:49 AM PT -- The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office said in a statement to TMZ Sports on Tuesday that Joe Mixon's home is "part of the crime scene."
Further details related to the football player's potential connection to the case were not released, however.
Multiple cops reportedly entered Joe Mixon's Cincinnati-area home on Monday night ... hours after they launched an investigation into an alleged shooting in the NFL star's neighborhood.
The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office said its officers headed out to the 7900 block of Ayers Road -- where Mixon lives in Ohio -- at around 8:25 PM after receiving a call of gunshots being fired.
A juvenile, according to cops, had been injured and transported to the hospital.
On-the-scene reporter Chancelor Winn said deputies cordoned off Mixon's home with caution tape after arriving -- and, at one point, knocked on his door while saying, "Sheriff’s Department. Come out."

Eventually, per Winn, they gained entry into the Bengals running back's home at around 1:30 AM. They left roughly two hours later. No arrests were made.
It's unclear if Mixon had any involvement in the investigation -- but WLWT News 5 reports his sister said the 26-year-old "was not involved in the shooting Monday night that injured a teenager."
