FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Authorities say a suspect in a domestic dispute is barricaded inside a home in north Fargo and has been firing shots amid a standoff with officers.

Multiple law enforcement agencies responded Wednesday night, and dozens of officers set up a perimeter.

Fargo Deputy Police Chief Joe Anderson says the incident began around 7 p.m. when a caller told dispatchers his father had possibly fired a gun at his mother.

Anderson says the caller and the suspect’s wife were able to leave the home unharmed. The suspect then began to fire multiple rounds out of the house.

A SWAT team was activated. Nearby residents were asked to stay inside.

Anderson said just before 2 a.m. the standoff was ongoing and officials are considering using robots to attempt to contact the suspect.
