There were no injuries or arrests after gunfire was reported near the intersection of Quaker Lane, King Street and Braddock Road on Sunday.

The Alexandria Police Department received multiple calls for service at around 2:45 p.m. to the 1700 block of W. Braddock Road — about two blocks away from Alexandria City High School’s King Street campus.

Police were dispatched to the area after an argument erupted between two men outside of an apartment building. One of the men, the suspect, allegedly pulled out a handgun, pointed it to the ground and pulled the trigger once.

No one was injured and the suspect fled the area in a black SUV, according to police.

Anyone with information on these incidents can call the APD non-emergency number at 703-746-4444. Callers can remain anonymous.
