Police in Arlington ended a standoff that lasted for hours late Saturday with the arrest of one man, William Trevon Caraway.

Officers evacuated several apartment units earlier in the night after responding to a report of a an active shooter who may be barricaded in a home.

It happened around 8 p.m. in the 3000 block of Little Brook Lane in far east Arlington. That's near Park Row and state Highway 360. Police told NBC DFW that 8-10 apartment units were evacuated.

At a briefing shortly before 9:30 p.m., police said two men (a current and former boyfriend) were fighting over a woman. A shot was fired by one of the men who then went back inside the apartment and refused to come out.
