MIDDLEBURG, Fla. - One person was arrested after an altercation Thursday morning at a Middleburg home, the Clay County Sheriff's Office said Friday. 

Deputies responded late Thursday morning to the home off Baxley Road, about halfway between State Road 21 and County Road 220. 

A Sheriff's Office spokesman said deputies were checking a witness report that a man had fired a shot, but have not confirmed that. An initial report that the department's SWAT team was deployed was not correct.

On Friday morning, the Sheriff's Office gave an update on the case, saying it learned that a dispute at the residence between two people who knew each other turned into a physical altercation.

The Sheriff's Office also said that one person who had been in custody at the scene was arrested. The person's name was not released.
