HARTLAND — Hartland police said a shelter in place is no longer in effect following a domestic violence call and a barricade situation Sunday morning.

During a brief press conference, Hartland Police Chief Torin Misko said police responded to a home at 2:33 a.m. in the 400 block of Hartridge Drive.

According to police, a woman and her children were safely removed from their home. But police said they were unsure if a suspect was still inside, and they believed that person may have had an axe.

"We wanted to have an abundance of caution, [so we] sent out the shelter in place order until we knew what we were dealing with," said Chief Misko.

Police found out the suspect was barricaded inside.

Chief Misko said after a few hours of attempting to communicate with the suspect, he was taken into custody outside the home without incident.

Misko added the shelter in place order was issued to encourage people to stay indoors, and so they were aware of the incident in order to alert police if they saw anything suspicious.

Police said they are continuing to investigate.
