MANITOWOC, Wis. (WBAY) - A Manitowoc County SWAT situation ended with one man in custody Sunday.

Offers heard the man left the garage and started firing his gun in his front yard. Captain Musial said no rounds were fired at other homes or people in the area.

The SWAT team took the man into custody.

The incident remains under investigation.
