CAPE CORAL, Fla. — Cape Coral police were seen to detain one person following an incident at the Uptown at Liberty Park Apartments early Thursday morning.

Video provided to Fox 4 shows police climbing a stairwell to a third-floor unit as fire alarm lights flashed repeatedly.

There are commands for a person to put their hands up.

Shortly thereafter, a man in shorts and a yellow shirt exits an apartment. After a few moments, police make movements near the apartment door, and a torrent of water can be seen rushing past officers' feet and over the sides of the building.

Later, at ground level, the man is seen placed in handcuffs as other officers stand around him.

Police have told us a bullet struck a water main, flooding several apartments.

It is not clear if the man who was detained was later arrested or faces any charges.
