WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — A West Lafayette neighborhood is still on lockdown as multiple police agencies work to get a man to turn himself in after firing shots in a domestic dispute this evening.

Tippecanoe County Sheriff Bob Goldsmith said the office received a text message at 5:50 p.m. from a female saying she needed help.

Two deputies arrived at a home on Jasmine Court in West Lafayette just west of Klondike Elementary School where they met the female and two children.

Goldsmith said the deputies escorted the female and two children out the door when two shots were fired. As they backed away a third shot was fired.

There are no reported injuries.

Tippecanoe County, Purdue Police and West Lafayette Police are still in the neighborhood working to negotiate with the man.

It’s unclear what his relationship is with the female at this time.

This story will be updated.
