Shots fired call leads to standoff with Fayetteville police

FAYETTEVILLE (WTVD) -- A police standoff ended peacefully overnight in Fayetteville.

It started just after 10 p.m. Tuesday when police were called about a domestic disturbance in the 300 block of Hinsdale Avenue, near Rowan Street.

When officers arrived, they tried to contact the residents inside a home, however, when they heard a single gunshot, they backed off.

The FPD's Crisis Negotiator's Team was then called to the scene and homes in the area were evacuated as a precaution.

During negotiations, officers were able to contact with the residents and learned that no one was injured.

A short while later, two women came out of the home and said a man was still inside.

Negotiators were able to determine that the man was not injured, and that he posed no threat to himself or others. He told officials that the single gunshot that officers heard was accidental.

After the situation was resolved peacefully, the woman agreed to stay the night somewhere else.

No charges have been filed at this time.
