Officers responded to a report of a suspicious person with a weapon at 320 Daniel St. shortly before 1 a.m. and ordered a man there to show his hands, police said.
The man then pulled out a gun and fired at officers, police said. One officer returned fire as the gunman fled the area on foot.
No one was wounded in the exchange, police said.
A short time later, police found the suspected gunman sleeping in an apartment on Rountree Street and arrested him.
