TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A man is in custody after Toledo police negotiators were called to a house on Third Street in east Toledo following a shooting incident.

Around 10:30 a.m., police say the mother of a 19-year-old man called to say her son shot out of a home window at a car sitting in the driveway. 

Negotiators were then called to coax him out of the house. After about an hour, the man came out with his hands up and was taken into custody. He was then transported to the station for questioning.

"It does take team work and a cooperative effort when we have something like this happen. Safety is paramount. We want to make sure that our officers are safe, the citizens are safe, and the suspect is safe, and that all happened today because everybody did their job," said Sgt. Joe Heffernan.

The incident is under investigation.
