TULSA, Oklahoma -

A standoff is over, but the suspect is still on the run. Authorities surrounded a home near North Yale and Apache Sunday afternoon, July 16 after they say a man fired shots at his mother and brother. 

The man had recently moved in with his family, and police said an argument escalated.

His family members weren't hurt and were able to escape the house and call police to the 4100 block of East Woodrow Place. There was a break in time between them getting out of the house and someone calling police, so officers weren't sure if the man was still in the house when they arrived.

"We have the victims - they are out; they are safe," said Sergeant Patrick Stephens, TPD, said earlier Sunday afternoon. "EMSA is out here tending to water for the victims and officers due to the high heat."

Dozens of officers shut off several streets around the scene as a precaution and waited for SWAT to arrive. During that time, police spoke to the suspect over the phone.

They said the man was deceptive about where he was, so they didn't want to take any chances on rushing the house without proper back up.

"It's pretty obvious he was lying about that but the biggest problem if he is outside moving around the perimeter and we don't have a good idea of who he is - he can come up and ambush," Sergeant Steve Stoltz told News On 6. 

Police said when the man is caught he could face multiple charges like pointing a deadly weapon and recklessly discharging a fire arm.
