OKLAHOMA - Police say at least four shots have been fired from inside a dent repair shop where a suspect is barricaded.

While they hope it ends soon, there is no way to know how long it may last.

"We're going to wait this thing out and see if we can negotiate peacefully to get this person out," Capt. Paco Balderrama said. "There's no reason for anyone to get hurt."

The standoff started around noon Tuesday.

Three bondsmen came to the shop, where the suspect was working to serve a warrant.

That's when the suspect began shooting.

"The bondsmen were able to get out without being hurt, but they did see the fugitive run into a garage and basically barricade himself in," Balderrama said.

"They can't see anything," said Dave O'Bannon, a Yukon parent. "They're not letting them even come up to the windows."

Across the street, the Yukon High School Basketball team was put on lockdown.

"I tried to get in, but I was stopped everywhere," O'Bannon said.

Roads were shut down, as police and tactical team members worked the scene.

It is not something this community is used to dealing with.

"This is a very safe community," O'Bannon said.

Police are asking residents to avoid the area for their own safety.
