RISING SUN, IN (FOX19) - A man is in custody following a standoff in Rising Sun.

It started when police responded to a domestic situation around 7 p.m. Sunday night at the Fairgrounds Trailer Court.

The situation escalated, leading James Farrell, 60, to barricade himself inside his home.

The Indiana State Police Emergency Response Team responded just before 1 a.m. and deployed gas into the trailer prior to executing a search warrant. Farrell fired two shots at ERT members from a bathroom window. ERT members did not return fire and shortly thereafter, Farrell exited the trailer and was taken into custody without further incident.

No one was hurt as a result of the gunfire.

Farrell has been charged with attempted aggravated battery, attempted battery with a deadly weapon, intimidation, pointing a firearm and resisting law enforcement. He is being held in the Switzerland County Jail.
