FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WTVD) -- A man was injured during a standoff with police that lasted 12 hours.

It began around 8:30 p.m. Saturday at a home near the corner of Desmond Drive and Baldoon in the Loch Lomond neighborhood.

Fayetteville Police Department tried to serve involuntary commitment papers on a man in the house. He refused to let officers in or come out himself.

Members of FPD's Crisis Negotiation Team worked for more than 3 hours to get the man to come outside.

After that, FPD said the man opened fire on officers multiple times. Two armored vehicles parked outside the house were damaged.

After a more than 12-hour standoff, the man left the house and surrendered. He was injured, but authorities have not detailed the extent of those injuries or how they were sustained.
