MEDFORD, Ore. — Officers with the Medford Police Department descended on an apartment building along Poplar Drive on Tuesday after a report of "shots fired" in the area.

According to Lt. Ivans, no officers fired any shots during the incident. Police do not believe there is any further danger to the public, and no one was reported injured from the gunfire.

Later in the evening, Medford Police confirmed that a man was arrested at the scene on "weapons-related charges." Officers on the scene were not able to find where the gunshot impacted.
