APD said a person was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound, but the injury isn’t expected to be life-threatening.

APD also said witnesses told them the suspect fled the scene to a “nearby area,” and that’s when SWAT was called to help in the search. The suspect wasn’t found, APD said, and the SWAT team has since cleared the scene. Detectives are still at the scene investigating.

APD said it believes this is an isolated incident and that there’s no threat to the public.
