Members of the Tri-City Regional SWAT Team were called out to home near Nixon Street and 20th Avenue on Thursday evening to search for at least one suspect.

Two people were arrested without incident, Warren said.

Neighbors said the home where the shooting happened hours earlier was a rental house close to the Highway 395 exit at Sylvester Street in a middle-class neighborhood.
