LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Officials say a SWAT situation near a JCPS elementary school in Okolona ended after a 13-hour standoff.

Officers responded to the Falcon Crest Apartments off South Park Road in Okolona around 1:30 p.m. Monday.

A man reportedly held himself in the apartment and refused to come out after an argument with his girlfriend. LMPD says he threatened to harm himself, and did fire shots at police. 

Officials say one person was taken into custody around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Some students at Blake Elementary School were not allowed to walk home from school to the area on Monday afternoon.

We're told the man is now undergoing a mental evaluation.
