Man arrested after standoff with police in Cottage Grove

A 28-year-old man from Cottage Grove was arrested by police after a four-hour standoff with police at his house with a 2-year-old child inside the house, the Star Tribune said.
The girl was not hurt during the standoff and was returned to her mother, according to police.
Cottage Grove police were sent to the 7400 block of 96th Street after 11:30 p.m. Friday night after reports of gunshots were reported. When police arrived, they spotted a man who lived at the home at the back of the house and heard another gunshot.
When police tried to confront the man, he went inside the house, and refused to come out. Police eventually made contact with the other people in the house, and two woman and an infant left the house, but a 2-year-old girl was still inside the house, the Pioneer Press reported.
The Washington County Special Response Team surrounded the house and tried to contact the man. Eventually they obtained an arrest warrant and entered the house around 3:45 a.m. Saturday.
The suspect was taken into custody and booked into the Washington County jail in Stillwater.
