No one was hurt and no charges have been filed following an incident in Edina Wednesday that prompted a temporary shelter-in-place order for residents within the immediate area.

The shelter in place was issued around 1 p.m., about an hour after officers responded to what the police department called a "possible disturbance" at an apartment on the 6000 block of Eden Prairie Road. 

"The reporting party claimed they may have heard gunshots along with a domestic dispute in the early morning hours," Edina police said in a news release Thursday.

"Officers attempted to make contact with the apartment’s occupants, but no one answered the door. Out of an abundance of caution and for the safety of those nearby, officers evacuated nearby units in the apartment building and requested that those in the immediate area shelter in place," the department explained. 

Police made contact with people inside the apartment at 1:44 p.m. Wednesday and all four left the unit without incident. No charges have been filed. 

Eden Prairie Road from Blake Road South was blocked by an Edina police SUV while the road immediately to the north was blocked off closer to where the apartment was located.
