WALLA WALLA -- A 59-year-old man was shot in the leg Sunday evening after a fight with another man that started inside the dog park at Fort Walla Walla Park.
Terry Eugene Bickford of Walla Walla was treated at a local hospital for a gunshot wound.
Meanwhile, Tyler B. Larson, 22, of College Place was interviewed by a detective at the Walla Walla police station, then released pending further investigation of the incident.
According to Walla Walla police Officer Tim Bennett, it started with a disagreement between the two men while inside the dog park. As it became more heated, the men left the fenced canine area and continued fighting a short distance away in the park, Bennett said.
Larson allegedly fired a semiautomatic gun a few moments later, hitting Bickford in the leg.
A 911 call was made at 6:41 p.m. Police said the shooting was not related to any gang activity.
