They say a woman was able to escape from the home on Chestnut Street to a friend’s house where she called 911. She told police her ex-boyfriend fired shots at her with a handgun. The man was holed up in a backroom of the home and refused to cooperate. After an hour-long standoff police were able to arrest him without further incident.
