MENTOR, OH (WOIO) - Charges are pending against a 54-year-old Mentor man after a SWAT situation Sunday night.

Cops were called to a home on Eastmoor Road around 7 p.m. for shots fired.

Upon arrival, officers attempted to make contact with residents on the phone, but were unsuccessful.

Three people then left the home, but a man remained inside and refused to come out to speak with officers.

The man was identified as Ronald Ewanek, whom is known to possess firearms.

SWAT was then called to the scene.

After several failed attempts to make contact with Ewanek, the SWAT Team deployed gas into the home.

Ewanek surrendered a short time later, and was immediately taken into police custody.

It was determined that no one was injured by the shots fired.
