An Annapolis man is now in custody after barricading himself in an apartment during a standoff with police. 
 
Police responded to the 1100 block of Madison Street at 8:30 p.m. Thursday for reports that Scotty Moss, a wanted, and possibly armed, was in the area.
 
Moss, 24, was wanted on several warrants, including one from a domestic violence-related robbery.
 
According to police, Moss ran into an apartment on Madison Street, and refused to come out. Crisis negotiators were called to the scene. 
 
Moss exited the apartment just after 11 p.m. and was arrested. Police then searched the vacant apartment and found a second subject, a 17-year-old male from Annapolis, inside. The teen was arrested and charged with fourth degree burglary on a juvenile citation and released to his guardian. 
 
Officers found two handguns inside the apartment. 
 
Police say an unknown subject fired shots in the neighboring Eastport Terrace community during the barricade, but nothing was hit. 
 
Moss has been charged with two bench warrants for failing to appear in court for traffic violations, a warrant for violation of probation in an attempted robbery case, and an arrest warrant for a domestic-related robbery, second degree assault, and unauthorized use of vehicle.
