SPOKANE, Wash. -- Officers responded to a dispute Friday morning at a Hillyard mobile home park when a shot was fired.

Investigators said the dispute at the mobile home park was reported on the 4900 block of North Florida Street.  When officers arrived, police said one of the men involved in the dispute fired a gun.  No one appeared to have been hit.  The man dropped the gun when he saw officers had arrived on scene, according to police.

Neighbors said the dispute started over a pair of shoes someone allegedly stole from a moving truck.  An altercation reportedly broke out and several people displayed guns, according to the witnesses. 

One man was placed in custody.  Investigators were looking into possible felony assault charges.

Detectives planned to be on scene for some time Friday morning to interview witnesses and neighbors.
