One person was arrested after a report of shots being fired in Duluth's Central Hillside neighborhood Thursday evening.  No one was injured.

The incident happened in the area of 6th Avenue East and 6th Street at about 9:30 p.m.  According to Duluth police, witnesses reported three males got into a fight inside of a convenience store prior to shots being fired.

Officers who were nearby saw a suspect vehicle and stopped it.  A 29-year-old man was arrested for being a felon in posession of a firearm and was taken to the St. Louis County Jail.

Police do not believe this was a random act and believe those involved likely knew each other.  They're asking anyone who may have information to call the violent crimes unit at 218-730-5050.
