An Evanston man is in custody after barricading himself from police Tuesday afternoon.

Evanston police responded to a call of shots fired about noon in the 1800 block of Dodge Avenue, according to Commander Ryan Glew.

When they arrived they learned a person had fired shots at someone and then retreated into their residence, Glew said.

Residents were advised to avoid the 1700-1800 block of Dodge Avenue and surrounding streets.

About 2:30 p.m. the man was taken into custody without incident, Glew said, and there were no injuries reported.

He was not charged with any offense, according to Glew.
