Responding officers then tried to make contact with a neighbor who refused to speak to police and barricaded themselves in their apartment.

Hillcrest Avenue between Stevens Street and Abbotsford Avenue was closed to traffic, but has since reopened.

No injuries were reported and the incident is under investigation. No arrests have been made.
