People who live in the neighborhood said they were worried when they saw all the lights and sirens.

“We came home, my sister and me came off work and tried to go to bed. She couldn’t sleep. She kept hearing the noises from the cops. We came outside and the whole day it was just noise from the police,” Tricia Crawford said.

Montgomery County Sheriff Rob Streck said deputies were called around 3 p.m. to reports of a fight between a man and a woman.

He said deputies found casings from a shotgun outside a home but then ran inside.

Deputies called out the SWAT team when they didn’t get a response from inside the home.

They surrounded the home and managed to get the woman to safety.

Around 9 p.m. the man came out and deputies took him into custody.

“There’s warrants involved with the suspect and the victim. So whenever that occurs it’s very hard to get people to come out easy,” Streck said.

No one was injured.

We are working to learn the name of the suspect and will update this story as new details are released.
