NORTHFIELD CENTER, OH (WOIO) - A peaceful end to an overnight standoff in Northfield Center Township.

Police were called to the Dover Place Condos for loud fighting and an apparent gunshot.

A man - Rocky Corea - had barricaded himself inside a condo after arguing with his brother. Corea's elderly mother was also inside the home - she is disabled and was unable to leave on her own.

After hours of negotiating, the SWAT team moved in and arrested 50-year-old Corea.

He was taken to the hospital for minor injuries and is now facing charges.
