CLEVELAND - Two people were arrested during a nine-hour standoff on Cleveland's west side that resulted in the discovery of a drug-growing operation.
The incident began about 2:46 a.m. Monday in the 2200 block of West 103rd Street, south of Madison Avenue, when someone called police to report shots fired.
Officers at the scene said they spotted shell casings outside of the house and a man looking out the window. The man did not respond to officers' order to exit the home and the SWAT unit was notified.
Neighbors told NewsChannel5 the homeowner was walking a dog and fired at least 30 shots into the air. They said he walked up his driveway, continuing to fire shots, and went inside the home.
Police said that further investigation revealed two men were seen entering the home earlier. They said they did not believe it was a hostage situation but wanted the men to call police.
Then at about noon, police confirmed one person was under arrest, but they did not say whether the situation was resolved.
At 1:15 p.m., police made a second arrest.
About an hour later, authorities said three dogs were removed from the home and more weapons were found inside.
The bomb squad was called to the scene due to chemicals used from marijuana plants also discovered inside.
Police said a marijuana growing operation was found in both the basement and second floor of the home.
Both men currently remain in police custody, but have not yet been charged.
