As Philadelphia police were responding to reports of a fight on the 700 block of Arch Street early Sunday morning, officers say a man fired a handgun a block away.

According to police, the man was seen by officers firing the handgun in the direction of 9th and Arch Streets shortly before 2 a.m. Police say the man was standing on the northeast corner of 8th and Arch streets when the shots were fired.

No one was injured in the shooting.

Police say the man got away. Investigators describe him as a black man, 6 feet tall with a beard. He was last seen wearing a white shirt with long blue sleeves and blue jeans.
