No one was injured by the gunfire, which was reported at 7:22 p.m. Saturday at the park on the south bank of the Spokane River, according to a news release. Q’emlin Park was closed overnight as police investigated but was back open by 8:30 a.m. Sunday.

A man was arrested for being a felon in possession of a firearm. Police did not identify him in a news release. The gun has been recovered and placed into evidence, police said.
