The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office's aggravated battery team responded to Riggsy's Billiards on the Southside after a fight early Thursday morning.

Police responded to the scene located in the Winn-Dixie parking lot in the 8700 block of Old Kings Road Sout around 2 a.m.

Officers at the scene told Channel 4 someone reported hearing a gunshot, and when they arrived, officers heard people arguing.

According to JSO, once officers separated everyone, they saw a man with a gun. They told that man to drop the gun and he complied. There were no reports of any injures.

Officers detained several people, but there had not been any arrests.
