A police officer suffered a hand injury after trying to break up the fight. The officer was taken to the hospital for treatment.

One minor was arrested on scene for assaulting the officer, Pittsburgh Public Safety said in a news release.

Police said when officers arrived at that scene several men ran off, including Jasyean Randall, 18, of Pittsburgh.

According to court paperwork, a plain clothes officer later heard Randall and others talking about beating up a cop.

The officer who heard that statement, as well as uniformed police, confronted the group.

Police said that’s when Randall ran off again, allegedly firing a gun several times as officers chased him.

No officers were hit by the gunfire.

Police said Randall was taken into custody on Strawberry Way.

He is facing several charges including aggravated assault and is being held in the Allegheny County Jail.
