    Fort Worth police ended a standoff peacefully Friday morning after a barricaded man refused to come out of his apartment.

    Police said the man fired several shots into the air after an argument with another man in an apartment complex near Gunnison Trail and Phoenix Street.

    A police officer nearby tried to stop the man, but he ran into his apartment.

    The man refused to come out and police SWAT teams were called out. As a precaution, nearby neighbors were evacuated to a safer location.

    Shortly before 7 a.m., police made contact with the man and took him into custody without further incident.

    Residents of the complex returned to their homes a short time later.
