CAMBRIDGE, MASS. (WHDH) - One person has been taken into custody after police say a barricade situation in Cambridge was “peacefully resolved” on Friday morning.

Officers responding to a report of shots fired on Sciarappa Street around 2:15 a.m. found ballistic evidence and saw a person retreat into an apartment, according to Acting Cambridge Police Commissioner Christine Elow.

Crisis negotiators were then brought in amid fear that there was a person inside the home with a firearm, Elow said.

Residents in the area were asked to shelter in place.

It took some time to get in contact with the person due to a language barrier, Elow said.

The incident came to a “peaceful resolution” and one person was taken into custody, Elow added.

A firearm was reportedly recovered outside the residence inside a vehicle.

Police are seeking a search warrant for the residence.

No additional information has been released.

An investigation remains ongoing.
