VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) -- Authorities in Vancouver, Wash., say they have a man in custody after an early-morning disturbance in which a shot was fired. But he wasn't inside a house that a SWAT team surrounded.

A Clark County sheriff's spokesman, Sgt. Fred Neiman, says patrol officers on Thursday morning picked up the man along a street about a quarter mile from the house in the Minnehaha area where officers went about 4 a.m. Thursday.

Neiman says officers had gotten several people out of the house safely and believed that a man remained inside. He says it's not clear when or how the man got out, but it was unlikely he slipped through the SWAT team's line.

Nobody was injured or wounded.

No charges were immediately filed. Neiman said detectives will review the case.
