PARMA HEIGHTS, OH (WOIO) -

Police arrested a 22-year-old man after a standoff early Wednesday morning.

Parma Heights police were called to the Valley York Apartments at 6951 York Road around 3:30 a.m., after the suspect allegedly fired a round in his third-floor apartment.

His mom and grandma told officers he thought someone was attacking him.

Both women escaped safely and called 911 from a first-floor apartment.

When officers arrived, the suspect refused to come outside and allegedly fired several more rounds inside the apartment.

He surrendered peacefully around 9:30 a.m. and was taken to a local hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.

Charges are pending and his name is not being released.

Officers say he has no criminal history.
