COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A man was taken into custody roughly three hours after he barricaded himself inside a Colorado Springs home.

According to the Colorado Springs Police Department, officers were called out for a report of a family disturbance in the 4800 block of Harvest Court around 5:54 p.m. When officers arrived, someone fired multiple shots inside and outside the home, according to the department.

The officers pulled back away from the home, and a shelter-in-place order was issued for surrounding homes. The tactical unit responded and contained the area.

The suspect surrendered at 9:05 p.m. and was taken into custody without incident, according to Colorado Springs police.

No officers were injured in the shooting. The suspect — identified as Kyle Houtz, 33 — was barricaded alone.
