FORT THOMAS, Ky. (WXIX) - A man has been arrested after he barricaded himself inside a northern Kentucky home Monday night, court records say.

Police were dispatched to South Fort Thomas Avenue and South Grand Avenue for a report of shots fired.

Officers said once on scene, they heard additional gunshots and saw dirt fly up from the ground in close proximity to them.

“Believing that shots were being fired from somewhere within a building, our officers took cover, secured the area, and called for Kenton County Regional SWAT,” Fort Thomas police said.

When SWAT arrived, they tried to communicate with 36-year-old Andrew Hutchinson but got no answer.

They then entered the house and took Hutchinson into custody.

He is being held at the Campbell County Detention Center.
