A man was in custody after police responded Tuesday evening to calls about a possible gunshot inside of a Miami Beach apartment.

Officers responded to the 400 block of Meridian Avenue. Police set up a large perimeter around the area of 5th Street and Meridian Ave with a massive law enforcement presence. 

Police told residents and visitors to avoid the area and told those who were already inside the perimeter to remain inside. 

NBC 6 saw officers in full gear with guns drawn. Officers took a man out of an apartment building in handcuffs.

Police later confirmed that a male inside an apartment was taken into police custody. However, police have not released an update about exactly what happened. 

There were no reports of injuries and the investigation continues.
