Officers were dispatched just after 1 a.m. Sunday for a fight at a party in progress at the youth center. En route, officers were alerted that shots had been fired, according to Capt. Chadd Murray of the sheriff&squo;s office.
No one was injured seriously, although one person reportedly fell and hit his head, Capt. Muray said.
The sheriff&squo;s office found a shotgun lying in the roadway with two live rounds and two cases that had been fired.
The sheriff&squo;s office is investigating the incident because a firearm was fired in a public area.
More than 100 people were estimated to have attended the gathering, according to officers.
