HARWOOD, N.D. (AP) - A 57-year-old Harwood man is in custody after a standoff at his rural residence that involved gunshots.

The Cass County Sheriff’s Office says officers responded to the residence shortly after 1 a.m. Tuesday after the man called authorities seeking to talk about an earlier incident at a West Fargo bar.

Authorities allege the man made threatening remarks. Officers who responded to his home say they heard nearly 10 shots fired. Area residents were told to shelter in place, and a road to the area was blocked off.

The man was arrested about 4:45 a.m. without incident on charges of reckless endangerment and terrorizing. Formal charges were pending.

Police did not fire any shots. No injuries were reported.
