They could be nice and knock on the door, but legally, they are under no obligation to. If they are responding to a "gun call", there is sufficient reason to beleive you are either committing a crime, going to commit a crime or have committed a crime. That means they can kick your door in, arrest you and make your life hell for a time. You can protest, but your are either going downtown the easy way or the hard way.
The only time they need a warrant is for a search, and the reasons needed can be as little as your refused consent, or they have reason to believe you will refuse. They do not need to ask you. That is black-letter law.
