Police thought a man with a gun was barricaded inside of a residence, but the SWAT standoff is now over after he was arrested at a different location, according to the Gwinnett County Police Department.

The ordeal began near James Road and Windwood Trail in Lawrenceville. The incident allegedly began as a domestic dispute, according to police. Shots were fired inside of the house, but family members escaped, according to police.

The family contacted police, and told authorities they believed he was still in the house. After a SWAT investigation, officials determined the man was no longer there.

Investigators determined the man was at a different location more than ten miles away off of Venture Drive. Officers found the man and took him into custody without incident.

There was not a weapon found on him, according to police.

Authorities tell FOX 5 that police were first called to the scene just after 3:00 p.m. and the SWAT team was called in just after 5:00 p.m.
