A late Saturday morning fight between approximately 20 people in Centralia reportedly resulted in shots being fired.

Centralia Police are investigating the incident that occurred just before noon in the 1000 block of North Maple Street.

A caller reportedly told police that one of the men involved in the fight pulled out a handgun, firing five times and sending the others involved in the fight scattering.

Then around 1:30 that afternoon, police responded to a report of a man who was possibly involved in the brawl seen carrying a shotgun while running on Rasback Street.
