Several arrests were made Sunday morning and a shot was fired in a fight at a Norman apartment complex.
The Norman Police Department was notified of a weapons call at the Dutch Hallow Apartments, 1201 Oakhurst Ave., 1:10 a.m. Sunday.
Initially, the police were told there had been a hit and run accident and security guards were holding three people at gunpoint, according to a police release.
The first police officers to arrive saw a fight between two males in the street. The officers also saw a female security guard fire one shot from a handgun in the direction of the men fighting.
Norman police officers took control of the situation and detained four people, including the two security guards.
One additional person — identified as Lelis Record, 21, of Norman — was combative with officers, the release said.
Record was brought under control with the use of a Taser and arrested on charges of disturbing the peace and public intoxication.
Record was taken to Norman Regional Hospital where he was treated and released for injuries sustained in the fight with the security guard.
No Norman officers used their firearms. The only person who used a gun was the civilian security guard, according to the release. The single bullet fired from her handgun was recovered, and it did not hit anyone.
The incident remains under investigation by the Norman Police Criminal Investigations Division.
