DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. — DeKalb Police said SWAT was called to Rockknoll Drive Tuesday morning, police said. 

Capt. R.C. Hughes said a call came in around 3 a.m. about a domestic dispute between a man and woman, and when officers responded they encountered the man, 30-year-old Tyler Bass, with a handgun.

Police said Bass and the two officers exchanged gunfire before the suspect allegedly barricaded himself in the home, triggering the SWAT response. 

SWAT negotiators eventually talked Bass out of the home, and taken into custody. He now faces several charges, including Aggravated Assault Strangulation and two counts of Aggravated Assault on an officer.

He's now being held in the DeKalb County Jail.
