INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – A suspect is in custody after a standoff with the SWAT team downtown Wednesday evening.

Officers were called to  Barton Tower, which is an apartment building on Mass Ave, just before 9 p.m.

Officials said the suspect has emotional issues, and when his mother tried to enter the 19th floor apartment, he refused to let her in.

At some point, the man fired two shots, police said.

SWAT members entered the building and tried to make contact with the man.

There weren’t any hostages and the adjacent apartments were evacuated.

At about 2:20 a.m. the SWAT team was able to get the suspect in custody.

We are still waiting for all the details on exactly how they were able to get the man in custody and what led him to barricade himself in the apartment in the first place.
