KENNEWICK, WA - A tense moment out in Benton County Tuesday night. It all started when Benton County Sheriff's Deputies got a weapons complaint just after 7pm Tuesday.

A deputy tells NBC Right Now that a neighbor had called in a possible shooting along Gum Street. However, when deputies got to the scene, they checked on the house that the neighbor had called about and found no shooting.

Deputies say a woman in the house had been arguing with her boyfriend and her five kids were in the house. The kids were between the ages of two and 12.

The man left the house before deputies arrived, but they say they aren't looking for him. Deputies don't believe the man to be a threat.

Luckily, no one was hurt.
