MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Madison police used their new armored rescue vehicle to end a standoff with a man who fired toward officers.

The man, who is in his 50s, was taken into custody Thursday night after the 90-minute standoff. He was taken to a hospital for an evaluation.

Madison police spokesman Joel DeSpain tells the Wisconsin State Journal (https://bit.ly/ZH0y1z) the man fired at police from the home on the city’s southwest side.

DeSpain says at least one house and a State Patrol car were hit by the man’s gunfire.

Authorities were called to the home for a domestic disturbance just after 6:30 p.m. A woman fled the home.

The man surrendered after six to eight SWAT team members rolled up to the house. He was unarmed when he came out of the house.
