"I just pulled up the street and saw all these cops there and I saw a neighbor. He said that he heard three or four shots fired. And then I called another neighbor and he said the guy is holed up in the house and it's surrounded by SWAT," one resident told Action News on Thursday.

Residents were told to shelter in place but the order was lifted a few hours later.

Mayor Strouse says the man may have been dealing with drug-related issues.

No injuries were reported.
