A man fired a gun at police during a standoff this afternoon in Frankfort.

Officers were called to the complex formerly known as Salem Square Apartments on Murray Street around 11:45 am.

Police say neighbors were concerned about a man who was acting irrational and strange.

Investigators say the man was also observed loading a gun.

He refused to come out of his apartment for police.

Officers tried to use a cell phone to make contact with the man.

They eventually used tear gas to try to get the suspect to surrender.

That's when witnesses say the man fired at police.

So far there are no reports of injuries.

A SWAT team is also at the apartment.

We'll bring you more details on the standoff tonight on ABC 36 News at 11.
