Officers responded to a 911 call from a neighbor about a child crying near a home at 88th Street and Vermont Avenue around 11:30 p.m.
When they arrived, a man refused to come out and he fired a number of shots, according to police. The suspect was eventually taken into custody and remains in jail.
The children and grandmother are OK. The children have been reunited with their mother, who was not at the home during the standoff. No officers were hurt.
