A Highland Park man has been arrested after barricading himself in an apartment for more than five hours, police said.

The 37-year-old man could face charges of assault with intent to murder and felonious assault, officials said. If convicted, he faces up to life in prison for the assault with intent to murder charge and up to four years for the felonious assault charge.

Police said officers responded to a call about a domestic disturbance in an apartment in the 250 block of West Grand Street near the Davison Freeway and Hamilton Avenue at about 9 p.m Tuesday. 

A preliminary investigation showed the man had an argument with his girlfriend and mother and fired a gun, according to authorities.

The two women escaped the apartment, but the suspect barricaded himself into the home for hours, officials said.

Officers were able to arrest the man without incident at about 2:30 a.m. Wednesday, police said.
