Two men were arrested after barricading themselves inside a Deserts Shores home Friday morning.

Police say there were several people in the home when they got there, but the two men refused to leave. There was also a 7-month-old baby inside the home during the barricade. 

The barricaded ended with SWAT officers negotiating with the men and cutting the garage door open. Both men were taken into custody.

Investigators believe the suspects may be involved with a robbery that happened at a bus stop Thursday night. 

Police told 13 Action News the victims in the robbery tried to follow the suspect when they were shot at. No one was hurt. 

Police spent the morning combing through the home along with taking prints off of a car outside the home. Police said several people who were inside the home were taken into custody. 

The baby made it out OK.
