Standoff Ends After Three Hours

Updated: Tuesday, March 19 2013, 12:33 AM EDT

COLUMBUS -- A standoff with Columbus SWAT and dozens of officers finally came to an end after nearly three hours.

This happened Monday night off Stevens Avenue in West Columbus.

Police said they came out because of reports of two men shooting at each other.  Negotiators said one of the men dragged a woman inside a house.

SWAT members surrounded the house while negotiators used a loud speaker to talk with the people inside.  Police initially said the people inside were unreceptive.

Negotiators said "we're not going away" over the loud speaker.

Eventually seven people came out of the house.  Police weren't sure how many people were inside during the standoff.  Officers are interviewing each of them. 

No one was hurt.
