A nine-hour police standoff in Breathitt County ended peacefully Tuesday.
Jackson police said the suspect, John Hays, 30, answered the door and claimed he'd slept through it all.
Police said the standoff began around 4:30 a.m., after they received a call of shots fired on Broadway Spur in Jackson.
Officers said Hays wouldn't answer his door, so they began to take precautionary measures in case Hays had a weapon.
Police said the two blocks surrounding the home were evacuated, six Breathitt County schools were let go early, and the Jackson city school was on lock-down.
In the meantime, police were calling Hays' phone, knocking on his door, and using a P.A. system to try to get him out.
Kentucky State Police tactical and K9 units were called in to assist around 9 a.m., but it wasn't until noon that Hays answered his door.
"Post 13 dispatchers were constantly calling the phone, so I don't know if it's just a combination of those things or if he looked out and saw this was a bigger deal than maybe he thought it might have been," said Kentucky State Police Trooper Jody Sims.
Troopers said Hays was taken away without incident, and was later charged with four counts of wanton endangerment for shooting a pistol in a neighborhood.
The standoff didn't officially end until around 1:30 p.m., when police deemed the house safe and allowed people to re-enter their homes.
Hays was taken to Three Forks Regional Jail.
