The man told police that earlier that night, he and several other people had gotten into a physical fight in an apartment on Ash Street. During the course of the fight, the man was shot but was able to get out of the apartment and call police.

Due to the threat of guns inside the apartment, SWAT personnel were called in. A woman came out of the apartment, but no one else was found inside.

Police said they did locate a hole in a bedroom door inside the apartment which appeared to have been caused by a bullet.
