NEW ALBANY, IN (WAVE) - A nearly two-hour standoff in New Albany ended peacefully Friday morning but not before three nearby schools were placed on a low-level lockdown.

The New Albany Police Department began receiving calls from neighbors about shots fired at a home on Greenaway Place around 7:30 a.m. No one was injured. Police described the incident as a domestic situation.

About 90 minutes after the standoff began, a woman and child were seen leaving the home. The male suspect left the home about 10 minutes later and was taken into custody.

Bill Briscoe, Assistant Superintendent for New Albany Floyd County Consolidated School Corporation said the three schools closest to the standoff -- New Albany High School, S. Ellen Jones Elementary School, and Hazelwood Middle School -- were placed on what he called a low-level lockdown throughout the situation. Briscoe said there was never a danger to students, faculty or staff.
