Gunshot might have been a backfire. Open the hood and see what is causing the fan sound with the engine running and let us know what you find.

A lean condition or timing failure plug firing while valve is open. Does it still start?

A lean condition may be a vacuum leak,broken hose,intake gaskets,injector seals, (sealing) manifold vacuum.low fuel pressure can also create a lean condition. Any commercial parts house scan for free.a diagnostic code will help get a better idea whats direction you should go
