COULEE CITY, Wash. -

A 49-year-old man is in custody following a Christmas Eve standoff with police and deputies in Coulee City.

The Grant County Sheriff's Office reports that at around 5:30 p.m., Christopher Krauer fired a gun several times at two people before locking himself inside his home.

Residents in a two block radius of the home in the 100 block of W. Chelan Street were told to stay indoors during the standoff.

A Tactical Response Team used flash bang grenades, tear gas and bean bag rounds to take Krauer into custody. The standoff lasted about four hours.

Krauer was booked into the Grant County Jail on suspicion of two counts of first degree assault and resisting arrest.
