INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – A SWAT standoff ended on the south side Wednesday afternoon with no one in custody.

Police said they didn’t find anyone after going inside the home. Indianapolis Metropolitan police called SWAT to the home in the 3500 block of S. State Avenue around 9 a.m.

During an update at the scene, police said the standoff stemmed from a Tuesday incident in which a man, identified as 44-year-old Bobby Gibson Jr., attacked his mother, leaving her in critical condition. Gibson forced entry into the home Wednesday morning, according to IMPD.
