UPDATE: Suspect taken into custody from stand-off in Norfolk
NORFOLK, Neb. -- Norfolk Police responded to a shots fired call early Saturday morning.
NPD said officers were dispatched to the 900 block of South 3rd Street at 7:28 a.m. on a call for reported shots fired.
Officers said they arrived and determined that several firearm shots were aimed at a house and bullet holes were recorded in the home along with shell casings found at the scene.
According to officials, no injuries were reported and a vehicle and person of interest had been identified.
NPD said the person of interest was spotted by a patrol officer around the 2400 block of Madison Avenue. The person then fled into a residence where a stand-off began with the police.
NPD said there was a family inside of the residence that the suspect ran into but was able to leave with no incident or injury.
Officers spent much of the morning and afternoon in the area of 25th Street and Madison Avenue. NPD asked the public to avoid this area for their own safety.
Reports said the stand-off ended around 1:30 p.m. and residents in the area were allowed to come out of their homes. Officers went in through the front door of the residence and the suspect escaped out of a back window and fled on foot before he was caught and taken into custody. No names have been released at this time. The Madison Tactical Response Team, State Patrol, and the Stanton County Sheriff's Office helped NPD.
