FARGO, N.D.—Police say a standoff at a Fargo home that left a police officer mortally wounded has ended.

Fargo Police Chief David Todd said in a news release early Thursday that the situation has been resolved and that neighbors need no longer shelter in place.

Police didn’t immediately give an update on the man who has barricaded himself inside the home since Wednesday evening. Todd said earlier that the man might have been shot in an exchange of gunfire with a SWAT officer.

The standoff began following a domestic violence report. Police said the standoff suspect fired multiple rounds and Officer Jason Moszer was injured. Todd says Moszer is in a hospital and that his family is “saying goodbye to him.”

Police do not believe anyone else has been injured.
