Heavily-armed police swooped on the high-rise housing block on Drummond Street at Carlton just after 3pm on Tuesday, following reports three men armed with a firearm were seen walking into the building.
As police scoured the building, two men tried to run away from them.
The men, aged 17 and 18, from Carlton, were both arrested shortly after 7pm. Both are in custody.
No gun was found and police are not searching for anyone else.
Police safely evacuated a school and childcare centre, which were put into lockdown at the time.
