KENOSHA, Wis. (WKOW/AP) — Kenosha police say several people were arrested early Sunday and several weapons were seized after a standoff that occurred when police responded to reports of gunfire.

Kenosha Lt. Joseph Nosalik said in a release that one of the officers responding to the call shortly after midnight Sunday saw a group of people outside the home and at least one person fire a handgun into the air.

When the officer identified himself he told the group to remain where they were. The people fled inside a house and refused to cooperate and wouldn't open the door or speak to the officer.

The suspects were eventually arrested with help from the Kenosha County Tactical Response Team.

Multiple firearms were recovered from the home. The person who fired the shot was taken into custody.

No injuries were reported by law enforcement.

Police say they do not believe the incident has any connection to protests relating to Tuesday’s decision by a prosecutor to decline charges against the Kenosha officer who shot Jacob Blake.
