WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) — A shootout between Williston police and a man who barricaded himself in a home ended when the man was shot and surrendered.

Officers responded to the home midafternoon Thursday after receiving a call from a woman saying a man had fired a gun inside. The man shot at officers and they returned fire, hitting him twice. No officers or bystanders were hit.

The man eventually left the home on his own, and officers escorted him to a waiting ambulance.

Police tell the Williston Herald that 59-year-old Ernest Schroeder was medically cleared and then arrested. He was booked in the Williams County Jail on a reckless endangerment charge. Attorney information was not immediately available.
