DIXMONT, Maine (AP) - State police in Maine say a standoff with a man who barricaded himself in his home has come to an end after the man fired several shots at police.

Police say Michael Grendell was taken into custody on Friday following the Dixmont standoff. They say he was being treated for injuries suffered at the end of the standoff.

Police say Grendell fired the shots Friday morning, but missed and hit an armed vehicle and robot.

The Portland Press Herald reports the standoff began on Thursday. That was a day after authorities say Grendell fired shots at a neighbor. It was unclear on Friday afternoon if he has an attorney.

Police had been at the home since Thursday afternoon, along with members of a tactical team, negotiators and bomb squad members.
