Orlando police are investigat­ing a shooting in the Central Business District that happened early Saturday morning.

The department said officers heard gunshots as they responded to reports of a fight near East Pine Street and South Court Avenue.

“At this point, it is unclear what started the fight or who might have been involved,” the agency said in a statement.

Shortly after the shooting, a man arrived to Orlando Regional Medical Center with a gunshot wound that is not life-threatenin­g, the department said. The wounded man didn’t cooperate with officers investigat­ing the shooting and declined to press charges.

No one else reported injuries from the incident.
