A barricaded shooter was reported in a residential area near Murakami Produce in Ontario Thursday morning, and police agencies blocked off access to Southwest 18th Avenue and Southeast Second Street, the Argus Observer reports.

Jeffrey Mckee, 52, was taken into custody in the parking lot of Red Apple Marketplace about 11:45 a.m., the newspaper reported. He’s accused of firing multiple rounds from multiple guns.

The arrest, in the 500 block of Southwest 4th Avenue, came about five minutes after the suspect fled the scene in a vehicle, the newspaper reports. The only injury stemming from the incident occurred when a police officer was injured when McKee ran from the police.

Numerous shots were reportedly fired in the neighborhood, and an Argus reporter on the scene heard five of those shots before being asked to leave the area, the newspaper reports
