TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - Toledo Police and SWAT members are on the scene of a standoff Friday morning on Cottage Ave. in north Toledo.

Police responded to the Ferris and Oakland after multiple Shot Spotter Alerts came through around 4 a.m. While on the scene, officers heard multiple rounds of gunshots fired from the rear of a home in the 3200 block of Cottage. They saw a male who they believe to be the shooter running from the back of the house.

JaJuan Brown exited the house upon request and was taken into custody. A 17-year-old female refused to exit, and authorities put barricade protocols in place with SWAT and negotiators. She later exited the house after negotiations. Five children were also in the house.

Brown was charged with firearms discharge within city limits, and the 17-year-old female was charged with obstructing official business.
