The situation was slowed down, and several individuals were called out of the apartment and detained.

At this time, several adult males and females are detained and being questioned by members of the Moorhead Police Department. No one has been formally charged. Investigators are still working on locating the firearm. No one was injured in this incident.

No further information is able.
