SHAWANO, Wis. (WSAU) --  A man is in custody after a four incident at a Shawano County home.

The 9-1-1 dispatchers received a call at 8:29 p.m. Saturday from a woman in the Town of Morris saying a family member had arrived with a gun and was causing problems. The Special Response Team utilized Brown County’s Bearcat armored vehicle to attempt making contact with the man.

Once team members were able to enter the lower level of the house, the suspect came out the front door. He was arrested at about midnight.

The man’s name will be released after the investigation is complete and charges are filed. Nobody was hurt in the incident.

Shawano and Brown County deputies were assisted by Tigerton and Stockbridge police, and the Wisconsin State Patrol.
