Tacoma police officers are investigating a fight on the East Side.

A 16-year-old boy was reportedly punched in the face near East 32nd Street and Portland Avenue shortly before 1 p.m. today. As the boy ran away, he heard a gunshot, Tacoma police spokesman Mark Fulghum said.

The boy provided officers with a description. Tacoma police and Puyallup Tribal police officers located the suspect and arrested him. He told officers his gun accidentally discharged. He no longer had the weapon, Fulghum said.

No one was injured by the gunfire.

Tacoma police were still investigating what happened.
