Shelter-in-place lifted following domestic assault in Horsham: police

A massive police presence swarmed Horseshoe Lane in Horsham amid a domestic dispute.

Authorities say a domestic assault turned barricade situation in Horsham Township prompted a Tuesday morning shelter-in-place. 

Police were called to a home on Horseshoe Circle around 4:30 a.m. for reports to a domestic assault, according to a release.

Investigators say the victim ran to a neighbor's home for help after being physically assaulted and threatened with a rifle. 

A barricade was declared when police say they were unable to contact the suspect inside the residence. 

Neighboring homes were evacuated and others were told to shelter-in-place during the standoff, according to police. 

Members of the Montgomery County SWAT team were eventually able to arrest the suspect without incident.
