A man is in custody in Warren, Michigan, after he allegedly fired shots at police officers during a standoff.

Police Commissioner Jere Green told The Detroit Free-Press that the police officers involved in the incident weren’t injured.

The man then ran into a house, but he was later taken into custody.

The shooting took place on Chalmers Ave.

Warren is located just north of Detroit.

Warren Mayor Jim Fouts told Detroit CBS that the altercation that prompted the initial 911 call involved the suspect, his wife, and their baby.

He said the suspect was barricaded in his home for a time.

“Police are getting the SWAT team organized and they are also seeking a warrant,” Fouts told the station.. “Obviously, the concern is, number one, to make sure that there’s no unnecessary injury on either side — especially involving the wife and his baby…and also to see if this can be resolved in a peaceful way.”
