One person is in custody following an incident that prompted Arviat RCMP to warn residents to stay away from the 700 block. 

RCMP responded to complaints of a male with a firearm in a residence at around 3:15 p.m., a news release says. 

That incident is now concluded, though police say they're still investigating. There were no reports of injury. 

"The Arviat RCMP is extremely grateful for the assistance community members provided during this event," the news release says.

"These types of events are very unpredictable and stressful for all involved but a peaceful resolution like this one is an outcome we all want."
