O’FALLON, Mo. (AP) - A man who was engaged in a standoff with police and SWAT team members in O’Fallon, Missouri, has been arrested.

St. Louis media outlets report the suspect surrendered around 10:45 p.m. Sunday after police used tear gas.

O’Fallon Police Chief Roy Joachimstaler said authorities initially responded to a call about a domestic dispute. Authorities say the man had barricaded himself inside home’s basement when they arrived.

According to police, a woman believed to be the suspect’s girlfriend had minor injuries.

Police said they sent a police dog into the home, and then heard a muffled gunshot. Joachimstaler said the dog was eventually released, and seems to be fine.

The suspect was transported to a local hospital for treatments of injuries inflicted by the dog.
