Tucson police detectives are investigating a shooting involving a DEA agent Wednesday afternoon near the Tucson airport, the Arizona Daily Star reports. No one was injured.

At about 2 p.m., members of the DEA Task Force were conducting an investigation in the area of East Valencia Road and South Country Club Road when the DEA agent tried to stop a vehicle.

A man and a woman jumped out of the vehicle and fled. The DEA agent chased the man on foot, and at some point,  the suspect pulled out a handgun and attempted to carjack a vehicle.

The driver of the vehicle drove off before the suspect could get into it, the paper reports.

The suspect was later found in a desert area and arrested without incident.
