FARGO, N.D. — Police have arrested a 23-year-old man after a nearly five-hour standoff in Fargo.

Officers were called to a residence on a report of an assault Tuesday afternoon. Authorities say when police arrived a female victim jumped out of a window and told officers the man still inside had warrants for his arrest. The female was treated for injuries at a hospital.

Police entered the house and found a second female who was taken out of the residence. Officers then heard what they believed was a gunshot, backed out of the house and called for assistance from tactical officers.

The suspect surrendered to police about 7 p.m. Police searched the house but say they didn’t find a gun.
