(KNSI) — There is a heavy police presence around an apartment building in St. Cloud after a shot was fired while a warrant was served there Tuesday morning.

The St. Cloud Police Department said officers knocked and announced their presence and a suspect threatened officers through the closed door. Shortly after, they say the suspect discharged a weapon once inside the apartment. No other shots were fired. There are no known injuries at this time and negotiations are ongoing.

The building was evacuated and the police set up a perimeter set up to ensure the safety of people. Oak Grove Road and Goettens Way are closed. The block around the building is also closed.

The public is asked to stay away from the area.
