It was a tense hour or so late Thursday afternoon in a normally quiet part of North Hollywood, when an argument between neighbors prompted one man involved to shoot a gun into the air and the cops came in after him.

Los Angeles Police Department officers responded to reports of people seeing a man with a gun in the 10800 block of Kling Street near Lankershim, according to City News Service. The cops spent over an hour swarming the area on the ground and with a police helicopter, until ultimately the man gave up and was taken into custody for questioning.

Although he did fire his gun, no one was hit.

Much of the police activity was going down across the street from Tiki No, as their weekly Thursday night food truck event was getting set up.

LAPD Officer Wendy Reyes says is not clear what the man who fired the gun will be arrested for.
