Man arrested after standoff situation

A man has been arrested after allegedly keeping police at bay for several hours.

Colorado Springs Police say that they were called to a home around 8am Monday morning after neighbors heard gunshots coming from the home in the 800 block on N. Wasatch, just north of downtown.

When police went to contact the man they say he went inside and wouldn't come out. SWAT was called to the scene and a robot was sent into the home. Police say the man shot at the robot. The man was taken into custody just before noon.

During the situation several streets were closed and area D-11 schools were placed on a precautionary lockdown. Those have since been lifted.
