SAN DIEGO — Police Monday were investigating a report that shots were fired during an early morning party at an apartment building in downtown San Diego's East Village neighborhood.

Dispatchers received reports of the gunfire around 5 a.m. at the Pinnacle on the Park high-rise apartment on 15th St., near J Street, according to San Diego police.

Officers responded to the apartment building and witnesses told them a fight broke out at a large party in the building before the gunshots were heard, public-affairs Officer Billy Hernandez said.

Officers searched the building, but no gunshot victims were immediately located, Hernandez said.

Police said one person was bleeding and was treated at the scene, but that person was not a gunshot victim.

Police detained numerous people who were apparently at the party, but it was not immediately clear if anyone was arrested or cited.
