CULLMAN COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

A three-hour standoff outside Arab ended peacefully with the suspect taken into custody Thursday evening.

Authorities responded to a domestic call just over the line in Cullman County on County Road 1834 with a man and woman inside a camper.

Law enforcement successfully got the woman out.

The man fired at least one shot, but no one was injured.

Cullman County Sheriff Matt Gentry said they also recovered several weapons from the scene.

"We were able to get a negotiator here and the negotiator was able to speak to this individual and have him surrender peacefully which was the outcome that we had hoped for," Gentry said.

No charges have been filed at this time. Gentry said the man was taken to a hospital to be evaluated.
