A shot was fired during a dispute in the parking lot of a 7-Eleven store on Columbia Pike last night.

The gunfire rang out around 6:45 p.m. on the 3600 block of Columbia Pike. Police say a man drew a gun during a dispute with another man and then fired a shot, though the gun might have been fired accidentally.

Police swarmed the store, placing crime scene tape around the entire parking lot as they investigated. No one was hurt, police said.

Police are describing the incident as “reckless handling of [a] firearm.” So far there’s no word on any arrests.

“At approximately 6:42 p.m. on November 11, police were dispatched to the report of a person with a gun,” said Arlington County police spokeswoman Ashley Savage. “Upon arrival, it was determined that two male subjects became involved in a dispute in the parking lot of a business. One subject produced a firearm and the firearm was discharged during the incident. The circumstances of the discharge remain under investigation. No injuries were reported. The investigation is ongoing.”
