NEENAH (WLUK) -- A person suspected of firing a shot at another person was arrested after a 90-minute standoff in Neenah.

Police say they were called to the 600 block of Main Street just after 1:20 p.m. after the report of the shooting. When officers arrived, they got people to safety.

Investigators learned the shot fired sparked from a disturbance between a 30-year-old man and an 18-year-old man. The 30-year-old man pointed a gun at the younger man and during a scuffle over the gun, it was fired, police say.

No one was injured.

The 30-year-old man then barricaded himself inside an apartment.

The SWAT team and police negotiators were called in and eventually the suspect surrendered peacefully.
