San Diego County sheriff’s deputies arrested two people after residents reported hearing shots fired inside an Alpine apartment Thursday.

Deputies arrived to Calle Conejo just before 4 a.m. after nearby apartment residents reported hearing banging on the walls followed by the sound of gunfire.

Deputies evacuated residents in the immediate area and set up a command post across the street from the Alpine Village Apartments complex.

One resident said he heard what he described as "rapid fire" overnight.

Officials said they responded to reports of a party at the same unit around 2:20 a.m. They said the occupants told deputies they would keep it down.

Deputies approached the apartment with a bulletproof shield, K-9, and megaphone, trying to make contact with the people inside for about 30 minutes.

They ordered the residents of that apartment to come out without anything in their hands.

Soon after, deputies were seen leading several people away in handcuffs including two men and one woman. Deputies detained 5 people for questioning, but at least three were released.

Deputies say two occupants of the apartment were ultimately arrested: Uriah Suhail Odish, 24, for delaying a peace officer, and Austyn Halsema, 20, for a felony warrant.

No one was injured and no weapons were found.

The investigation is ongoing. Detectives are asking anyone with information on this case to call the sheriff’s department non-emergency line at (858) 565-5200 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
