    Question Which one is correct?

    Hi everyone!
    I'm very new to this site and this is my first ever question. I hope to get satisfying answers from experts.
    Which one of the following is correct to mean that somebody is firing?
    1- Do not go there. There are fire shots over there.
    2- Do not go there. There is a fire over there.
    3- Do not go there. There is firing over there.

    Which of the following two is correct to mean that somebody is firing?
    1- Do not go there. There are fire shots over there. X
    2- Do not go there. There is a fire over there. XX This has a completely different meaning.
    3- Do not go there. There is firing over there. Possible.
    I'd say, "Don't go (over) there. They're shooting/firing".
