A suspect was in police custody after barricading himself inside his Normandy Isles home after shots were fired early Thursday morning.
Several hours after the incident began, the man gave himself up to police custody, who were taking him to the hospital.
Police had closed off four blocks of the area around the 6900 block of Rue Granville, and traffic had been backed up and detoured. Eastbound 79th Street Causeway going onto 71st Street or Normandy Drive was reopened several hours later.
Police said that around 1 a.m., a 53-year-old man, intoxicated with drugs and alcohol, he went outside his apartment, started hallucinating and shooting into the air. Police responded and his wife answered the door and told police everything was fine.
Police returned again, and took her away. She was not arrested. The man barricaded himself in his house, but authorities do not believe anyone is in that home but him.
Police said they believe he has a shotgun and handgun. He hadn't displayed aggression towards police.
A man in the neighborhood said he heard one shot.
