A woman would also be taken into custody, but later released.

“Our officers believe that there was a third individual within the residence prior to police arrival and that individual is believed to have fled the area,” Bharaj added.

“Police are still working to investigate that.”

Bharaj confirmed no shots were fired during the standoff but could not confirm if any were discharged before police arrived.

He says the man is likely to face charges tied to possessing firearms.
