Two deputies were arrested around 3 a.m. Friday morning after they were caught shooting their guns at La Mirada Regional Park, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

It's not clear whether this was some sort of ill-advised, late-night shooting practice or something even more serious. No one was hurt by the gunfire, although one deputy was treated for some sort of injury at the hospital and released.

"I don't know if there was an argument, I don't know if there was a fight. I do know this will be thoroughly investigated," Deputy Pete Gomez told the Los Angeles Times.

The sheriff's department got a call that from a local resident that someone was shooting off a gun in the park. There were three deputies at the park, and it doesn't look like anyone else was involved.
