DAYTON, KY. (FOX19) - A SWAT standoff in Northern Kentucky ended with a gunman under arrest early Monday.

The standoff began when guest at a house party in the area of 10th Avenue near Ervin Terrace had too much to drink, became reckless and was asked to leave about 10 p.m. Sunday, according to Dayton Police Chief David Halfhill.

The man went across the street to another home and fired shots into the other one, he said.
