SAN ANTONIO (AP) Authorities say a man was engaged in a standoff with police late Sunday night at a home in San Antonio.

The San Antonio Express-News reports (http://bit.ly/WbEyL3 ) that police responding to a call for an assault in progress encountered a male suspect and female victim in the front yard of a home.

Police Officer Misty Floyd tells the newspaper that the suspect did not comply with police demands and waved what police think was a weapon toward them.

She says police opened fire on the man, who did not shoot back.

The newspaper reports the suspect had barricaded himself in the home and was speaking with negotiators.

Floyd said she could not verify whether the suspect had been injured.

A police department spokeswoman did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
