A purported attack Friday night initially reported to have involved gunshots in the Larch Mountain area turned out to be a fight at a party in which rocks were thrown.

No one was seriously hurt and none of the people who initially claimed to be victims wanted to pursue criminal charges, Clark County sheriff’s Sgt. Scott Schanaker said Monday. As a result, the responding deputy did not file a police report.

Clark County sheriff’s deputies were called to the area of L1200 Road at about 11 p.m. Friday. When a deputy interviewed at least two people who had purported they were victims of an attack involving several people, the people declined to make a statement.

The deputy told 911 dispatchers that the two wanted it “to be treated as a lesson-learned situation,” according to dispatch call logs.

A vehicle was damaged by the rock-throwing, Schanaker said. There were no gunshots.
