Montreal police have arrested four people after a man barricaded himself inside a Cote-des-Neiges apartment building Tuesday night.

An altercation started on Lemieux Street around 9:15 p.m. and then one of the two men involved took out a gun and fired.

The victim wasn’t shot, the bullet ended up hitting a nearby parked car.

The shooter then fled the scene and barricaded himself in an apartment on Carlton Street.

The SWAT team and negotiators were called in, a perimeter was set up and nearby residents were warned not to leave their homes.

Around 2:15 a.m., the tactical squad was able to penetrate the unit and arrested four people inside.

The three men and one woman were all in their twenties.

The detainees will meet with detectives during the day Wednesday, and charges will be laid, according to police Constable Jean-Pierre Brabant.
