At least one person is in custody after a standoff in Phoenix overnight.

Phoenix police said the situation started as a domestic violence incident at a home near 13th Street and Van Buren on Friday morning.

According to police, a man fired his gun into the air and officers heard a woman scream “give me the baby.”

The couple refused to exit the house and police learned there were three children in the home.

The situation came to an end when a bean bag gun and PA system was used.

Five homes in the area were evacuated as a precaution. No one was injured at the scene.
