CINCINNATI (WXIX) - A SWAT situation just ended in western Hamilton County with the suspect in custody, according to the sheriff’s office.

With his hands up, the suspect, 25-year-old William Woody, walked out of a residence on Wing Avenue off East Miami River Road in Miami Township, said sheriff’s spokeswoman Kyla Woods.

Deputies initially responded to a report of shots fired around 4 a.m. Friday, according to dispatchers and sheriff’s spokeswoman Kyla Woods.

“There had been an altercation between two brothers at a residence,” Woods told FOX19 NOW. “One brother called and claimed that the other brother shot at him.”

The gunshot from Woody did not hit his brother, according to Woods.

The sheriff’s office called in SWAT and was “actively trying to sort out the scene,” she said.

Around 10 a.m., SWAT went into the home with a drone and Woody then surrendered to the approaching officers, Woods said.

Woody was taken to the Hamilton County Justice Center on charges of felonious assault, having weapons while under disability and aggravated assault, the sheriff’s office said.
