ROSELAWN, Ohio (FOX19) - Police arrested a 12-year-old for firing shots that led to a SWAT standoff in Roselawn Saturday, said Cincinnati Assistant Police Chief Paul Neudigate.

Several officers and SWAT team members responded after the suspect allegedly fired 13 shots at an apartment complex.

Initially, police said a man barricaded himself inside an apartment in the 1900 block of East Seymour Avenue near Hirsch Drive.

Officers moved residents away from the complex after arriving at the scene. Children could be seen running away to safety as SWAT team members geared up, loaded into an armored truck and went into the apartment complex in search of the suspect.

Assistant Chief Neudigate said police recovered the gun and found several shell casings.
