A man is in custody after a standoff in El Dorado overnight.
Officers responded to the report of a domestic violence call in the 400 block of Hillside Thursday morning. They found one person who had been injured and treated the victim before they were transferred to a nearby hospital.
Authorities then tried to make contact with a suspect inside a home in the area. The suspect refused to cooperate with officers, and barricaded himself inside the home.
Police said officers called Butler County SWAT team members for assistance after learning that firearms may be in the home.
Negotiators managed to talk the suspect out of the house about three hours later. No one was hurt.
Michael Hejduk was taken into custody and booked into the Butler County District Court on aggravated battery and domestic violence charges.
Authorities did evacuate several homes in the area during the disturbance.
