1 taken into custody following reports of a shooting at Hialeah apartment complex

A domestic violence situation escalated when a firearm went off early Friday inside a Hialeah apartment complex, police said.

The call came in as a shooting shortly after 6 a.m. Friday at an apartment complex at 7271 West 24th Avenue, according to the Hialeah Police Department.

Police later learned that an altercation occurred after a witness armed with a firearm intervened in the domestic dispute, said Lt. Ernesto Rodriguez, spokesman for Hialeah police. The firearm discharged but did not strike or injure anyone, he said.

NBC6 recorded a shirtless man being taken into custody later Friday, but Rodriguez did not disclose the man’s identity.

WSVN reports the man was the one involved in the altercation but that it’s unclear if the armed witness will be facing any charges.
