Man barricaded in Portage house

PORTAGE, Ohio — A man who threatened to hurt himself and anyone who came on his property was taken into custody late today by Wood County sheriff's deputies, about an hour after he refused to respond to authorities.

The standoff began about 9:25 p.m. in the village south of Bowling Green, and special response deputies and negotiators were dispatched to the scene, Sheriff Mark Wasylyshyn said.

It was unknown whether the man was armed, although authorities said a gunshot was heard in the area about 9:30 p.m.

No injuries were reported.

"We have him safely in custody," the sheriff said.
