Police said they received a call around 8:05 a.m. from a person outside an apartment in the 4600 block of Walden Circle about an ongoing disturbance with a person described as “possibly armed inside the residence.”

Officers said they arrived to find the victim was outside and already out of danger. The victim told them the suspect was still inside with access to a gun, according to police.
