Two men were arrested in Dartmouth, N.S., Sunday after one of them threatened to kill a man inside his apartment on Primrose Street. One of the men was later released and won't face charges.

According to Halifax Regional Police, the resident called 911 and reported that two men, one armed with a handgun, entered his apartment and threatened to kill him.

Police blocked Primrose Street to vehicles and pedestrians, and people in the area were asked to stay inside. At 4 p.m., the two men surrendered and exited the home when they were called out by the emergency response team.
