Metro police took a man into custody late Monday night following a standoff at an east Nashville home.
A call of shots fired brought officers to the home located near the intersection of Meridian and McFerrin streets.
When police arrived, the gunman retreated into the house and refused to exit.
A women and child inside the home at the time managed to escape through a window.
SWAT teams were called to the scene and, after about an hour, used flash bang grenades to force him out.
No one was injured.
The suspect, whose name wasn’t released, will undergo a mental evaluation.
No charges were filed.
