It happened around 9:30 p.m. Monday in the 1500 block of Thames Drive.

Neighbors called 911 and reported shots fired, along with a man trying to force his way into a home.

When police got there, neighbors told them the man had gotten inside.

Police found a shell casing at the back of the house.

After setting up a perimeter, police called their emergency response unit and Donald Shane Gooch eventually came out peacefully.
