Police are asking the public's help in identifying the person who fired a 9mm round in a west-central Salina park early Friday.

Patrol Captain David Villanueva said this morning that at approximately 4 a.m. Friday, a 23-year-old Salina man who was in Sunset Park was confronted by a group of people in a dark-colored passenger car.

After words were exchanged, the car left, but returned a short while later. Someone in the car fired a single round before the car left. No one was hurt by the shot, Villanueva said.

Police found a 9mm shell casing at the scene.

While police do have some surveillance video from the area, Villanueva said they are asking people in the area of the park to check their surveillance video and contact police if they believe they have some video that might provide information about the case.
