    Police surrounded a townhome after receiving a 911 call about an armed home robbery in progress there.

    They noticed signs of forced entry before an armed suspect engaged an officer around the rear of the home. The officer fired her weapon before the suspect fled, authorities said.

    Authorities are unable to confirm whether anyone was struck, Lt. Bill Alexander told News4's Pat Collins at 11 a.m. The suspect in custody was not hurt.

    Police are questioning a second man, Collins reported. Police believe the house was targeted.

    Alexander said they have recovered two guns from the scene, one from inside the home and one outside.

    No officers were injured. The officer who fired her weapon is on routine administrative leave while the incident is investigated.
