FOND DU LAC, Wis. — An official said reports of gunfire heard in a Fond du Lac neighborhood led to an hours-long standoff Wednesday morning.

The Fond du Lac Police Department said it received multiple reports of shots fired at 6:38 a.m. heard in the 100 block of Hamilton Place.

Capt. Jason Laridaen said officers responding to the area also reported hearing gunfire. Police initially weren’t able to make contact with anyone inside the residence, so the SWAT team was requested. At some point in the morning, police were able to contact the people in the home.

Laridaen said the standoff ended at 11:40 a.m. when the three people inside came out peacefully. Two men and a woman were taken to the police station to be interviewed.

Laridaen said as of Wednesday afternoon, no one had been arrested. One of the men who was in the home is a person of interest.

Residents were asked to avoid the area while police investigated.

Laridaen said no one was injured. Police are still investigating, and it wasn’t immediately clear Wednesday afternoon if any property had been damaged by the gunfire.
