TUCSON - The search for a gunman has wrapped up in a midtown neighborhood in Tucson.
It all started near 29th and Alvernon Wednesday afternoon when someone called 911 about a man shooting at their dogs.
Possible shots were fired at police when they arrived.
The neighborhood was sealed off as law enforcement, including a SWAT team, searched by ground and by air.
James Jacques got a call from his wife letting him know that it was his house where the gunman fired shots at his pit bulls.
"She's pretty scared, I got some crying kids at home that I can't get to so it's a little nerve wracking," Jacques said as he waited to re-enter his neighborhood.
"The police officer told me that when they came to my house to respond they actually hear gun shots toward them and that's what brought the whole fleet," Jacques said.
Tucson Police re-opened the neighborhood after several hours. They were unable to locate the gunman but deemed the area safe for residents to re-enter.
