Man fires shots after police called to residence, police say
A man fired shots inside his home early Friday morning after police responded to a report of a man having an emotional crisis, according to a report from Madison police.
Police have named Tommie E. Evans, 31, of Madison, as a suspect.
Madison police said officers were called to the 1000 block of Gammon Lane at 3:10 a.m. after family members left the home. Officers were told that the man inside was not armed, but they heard numerous shots fired inside the home.
Eight officers, using ballistic shields as cover, entered the residence to try to talk the man into coming down from an upper-level bedroom.
The suspect came out of the residence still armed with a handgun, but negotiators were able to convince him to lie down on the ground and drop the weapon, according to police.
Evans was taken to a hospital for medical evaluation and is currently in jail for a parole violation. He is expected to face numerous charges, police said.
