SANFORD, Fla. -

Sanford police are searching for the person who opened fire in an apartment complex after a heated argument.

Emergency crews were called out to the Mariners Village apartments early Wednesday when 911 operators received several calls for a shooting in the complex.

According to police, someone who lives in the complex got into an argument with several people after an inappropriate comment was made.

Police said the argument led to a scuffle and several shots were fired outside an apartment building.

At one point the scuffle spilled into a second floor apartment and shots may have been fired in that unit, according to police.

No one was shot or seriously injured in the fight. 

Police said the suspected shooter, who has not been identified, ran off before emergency crews arrived.
