Supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood and residents of Alexandria's Sidi Beshr clashed with gunfire earlier on Friday, an Aswat Masriya witness said.
Allies of former President Mohamed Mursi staged a march in Sidi Beshr after Friday's noon prayer.
The area's residents intervened to stop the march, which prompted Mursi's supporters to clash with them.
The two sides hurled stones at each other, but the clashes escalated to the point of exchanging gunfire.
