The Sierra Vista Police Department is investigating a shooting at the Las Palomas apartment complex that sent one local man to the hospital with an injury that was not life-threatening on Tuesday afternoon.
SVPD detectives responded to Las Palomas, located at 499 S. Carmichael Ave., at about 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday to investigate a reported shooting.

A large fist fight broke out and somebody fired a round that struck a 45-year-old Sierra Vista man who was trying to break up the fight.
The man was treated at Canyon Vista Medical Center and has since been released.
