BRANDON, Fla. (970 WFLA) - Hillsborough County Sheriff's deputies say a man is in custody after officials say he barricaded himself in a home Sunday and fired shots at deputies.

At 4:00 p.m., HCSO said deputies responded to the 500 block of Larry Circle North (off of Bryan Road) in reference to shots heard. When deputies arrived, they say they found a man outside armed with a long barrel gun who then went back inside the home. The deputy made several attempts to talk the individual out, HCSO said, ultimately SWAT was called to the scene.

During the course of the barricade situation, deputies say the man had fired numerous rounds through the door.

After four hours, deputies say SWAT team members went inside the home, found the man, and also found several weapons. 

Deputies say the suspect has been taken into custody and will be transported to Tampa General Hospital first due to his extreme intoxication. 

No deputies were injured.
