Police are investigating after a law enforcement officer discharged a firearm Wednesday, but a Clark County Sheriff’s Office spokesman said the office would not yet make additional information available.

Sgt. Fred Neiman said there was a “disturbance” on a call Wednesday, but he declined to elaborate on what happened or where, and would not identify the officer’s agency.

Neiman said no one was hurt, and detectives are reviewing the incident.

“Right now it’s at the early stage of the investigation, and they’re not ready to release any information at this point,” he said.
