Police were called to a home in the 980 block of Brentwood Street on a report of shots fired Wednesday. Montgomery allegedly broke into the home of his 24-year-old ex-girlfriend and physically assaulted her with a handgun.

Officers were allowed inside and Montgomery allegedly threw a cinder block and fired off shots. Police grabbed two children and took them to safety.

An hours long standoff ensued until officers found that Montgomery had allegedly left the residence when officers took the children from the home.

Montgomery was later taken into custody.
