It is now nearly 16 hours since a man has been holed up in his trailer in North Missoula, refusing to surrender to police.
Since the standoff started, police have been fired at and a woman has been held inside with the suspect.
It started at 6:30 a.m. on Monday when police went to the location near the intersection of Cooley and Burns to talk to a man who was accused of assault.
He refused to cooperate after starting the standoff. At about 1 p.m., a Special Operations Unit in the alley of the trailer was fired on once, with a round hitting the armored vehicle.
No one was hurt but police and Sheriff's deputies seemed ready to wait the suspect out.
Power was turned off to the home and two robots were used to check the inside but no word if any information was gathered from them.
