SWAT responded to a barricade situation in northeast Columbus Friday morning, that ended with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The incident happened in the 700 block of Ashton Woods Place, just south of East Dublin Granville Road.

Columbus Police said a woman got into a fight Thursday night with her boyfriend, and he locked himself in an apartment. After returning to the apartment this morning, she called 911.

Responding officers say they heard a gunshot when they knocked on the door, prompting the barricade. Police asked people to avoid the area and evacuated neighboring apartments as a precaution.

Police say the man shot himself, and was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
