DALLAS (AP) - Dallas police say a standoff has ended peacefully with nobody found inside an apartment where someone earlier shot through a front door at officers serving a warrant.

Maj. Jimmy Vaughan says a man believed to have been in the apartment, who exited with several other individuals after the shot was fired Thursday morning, has been detained. Vaughan had no immediate information on charges.

Nobody was hurt.

Dallas police say the incident began as officers tried to serve an aggravated assault warrant around 6 a.m. Thursday and someone shot through a door.

Vaughan says police did not return fire. Several people then came out of the apartment.

Officers treated the situation as a barricaded person until tactical officers, after about 5½ hours, entered the unit and found it unoccupied.
