When an officer was helping that person get back in, the other party — who had the door locked — shot at the officers.  No one was struck.

They backed up and set up a perimeter around the scene, trying to negotiate with the man to end the dispute peacefully.

Neighbors told KTSA News police were at the house at around 7 a.m. Thursday and it seemed the matter had been resolved then.  Another neighbor said there had been issue there a couple months ago. The stand-off ended at 11:15 Thursday night when 34 year old Ebin Ford surrendered to police. He’s been charged with Attempted Capital Murder.
