Newport News, Va. - Several people were arrested Thursday night after officers were fired upon as they tried to serve a warrant at a home in Newport News.

Officers returned fire and removed and detained several people from the home before a tactical team arrived and made sure the house was clear.

It all began around 7:10 p.m. when officers arrived at a house in the 2000 block of Chestnut Avenue to serve a warrant.

At 7:13 p.m., police say shots were fired from inside the house and officers on the scene returned fire.

They set up a perimeter and the tactical team went to the scene. No one was hurt in the incident.
