VERONA, N.Y. -- A man is in police custody after a several hour standoff in Verona Friday. 

Shots were fired during the standoff at a barn that blocked off a portion of Route 46.

State police, the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office, and the Utica Police Department SWAT team were called to the scene shortly after 12 p.m. for a report of a barricaded man inside a barn behind the home.

According to police, the man, who is around 35-years old, had multiple weapons, including at least one long gun.

A number of shots were fired toward officers and vehicles, and there is allegedly evidence that the subject fired several rounds. 

No injuries have been reported at this time, and law enforcement officials were working to get the subject out peacefully. 

The incident happened at a home at the Walker Road and Route 46 intersection. 

Police went house-to-house to notify residents, but they were not evacuated because it is a rural area where the homes are spread out. 

Route 46 North was shut down at Route 31, but has since reopened.
