It happened at a home on the 1100 block of McNeil Road, a mile north of the 45 toll road. Police say they got a 911 call just before 7:30 p.m. Thursday night from a father who said his son fired a gun at his daughter after an argument.

The woman was unharmed and told arriving police that Gonzales was possibly barricaded inside the home on McNeil. After a four hour long standoff, police went into the house and found it empty. The situation was over by 11 p.m.

Police were looking for Gonzales after the incident, but have now located him and taken him into custody. He was considered armed and dangerous.
