CUDAHY, Wis. (AP) -- Cudahy police have arrested a 34-year-old man after a 4 1/2-hour standoff in which shots were fired.

Officers went to a home Friday afternoon on a report of a man who made suicidal statements and displayed a gun during a video phone call.

Police say both the man and an officer fired shots during the incident, which began around noon. Surrounding homes were evacuated.

SWAT team officers used a chemical agent and entered the home just after 4:30 p.m. The man was taken to a hospital with what Police Chief Thomas Poellot describes as a non-life-threatening injury.
