A man was taken into custody Thursday night after barricading himself inside a home for hours when police officers responded to a call of shots fired in the South Chicago neighborhood.

About 2:50 p.m., officers responded to the report of gunfire in the 8100 block of South Crandon, Chicago police said.

When they arrived, they found the 24-year-old barricaded inside of the home and a SWAT team was called to the scene, police said.

He was taken into custody about 8:15 p.m., police said.

No one was hurt, police said.

“Barricade ended peacefully with no injuries to officers or residents,” CPD spokesman Anthony Guglielmi tweeted. “Special appreciation to Chicago Police SWAT and district officers who demonstrated exemplary professionalism during a very dangerous involved situation.”

Police previously reported that shots were fired at officers.
