Fond du Lac police involved in standoff

Police have asked residents who are home in a Fond du Lac neighborhood to stay inside while they deal with a tactical situation.

Officials say the standoff outside an apartment may be connected to a house fire in the city Monday morning. Police tell WBAY-TV that a man holed up in an apartment fired shots at officers, but no one was hurt.

Authorities say the man in the apartment is a ‘person of interest’ in the fire at a two-story house elsewhere in the city.

Police have issued a “shelter in place” alert for those in the neighborhood where the man is holed up.
