KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) - Kenosha police said several people were arrested early Sunday and several weapons were seized after a standoff that occured 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. The people fled inside when the officer identified himself.

The release said the Kenosha County Tactical Response Team was called to assist after people in the home refused to cooperate with officers. The suspects were eventually arrested, including some who continued to ignore police commands while authorities were inside the home, police said.

Police said 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.

No injuries were reported. The incident remains under investigation.
