WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. Park Police say a man has been charged after a gun was fired inside a car on the National Mall.

Sgt. Lelani Woods said in a news release Wednesday that 30-year-old Maurice Holmes of Washington was charged with fleeing to elude law enforcement.

Woods says Holmes was the driver of a car described by witnesses after Tuesday’s incident in southwest Washington, between the World War II Memorial and the Tidal Basin.

Authorities say an argument occurred among several occupants of Holmes’ car. At least one shot was fired, which shattered the rear passenger side window, Woods says. No injuries were reported.

Police say a gun was recovered about a mile from where the shooting was reported.

Police have interviewed two of the three occupants of the car.
