ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - An Anchorage teenager was beaten and a bystander shot as two dozen people gathered Wednesday night to watch a fistfight.

KTUU-TV (http://bit.ly/1t3gKTP) reports police afterward arrested three people in a parking lot on Old Seward Highway.

Police say two young men had an ongoing dispute and planned to fight outside a Sports Authority store.

One participant ended up being beaten by three young men. Someone in the crowd fired shots in the air, leading to gunfire by others.

Police say a 16-year-old girl was hit by a bullet and suffered a non-life-threatening injury. She and the injured boy were taken to a hospital.

A 17-year-old boy was charged with assault.

Two adults with outstanding warrants also were arrested and a 22-year-old man was cited for driving with a suspended license.
