Media outlets report that police responded to the area Sunday afternoon, and that it appeared no one was injured.

Police say a white man and a black man began arguing at the restaurant Zinburger. According to authorities, the white man slapped the black man in the face, then pulled out a handgun and fired one shot. No injuries were reported.

Both men fled the scene.

Police announced Sunday evening that a suspect was in custody, but didn’t release his name.
