Deputies exchanged gunfire with a suspect while trying to serve an arrest warrant last night. It happened around 8:30pm at a home on Easthaven near Almeda-Genoa. Deputies arrived at the home to serve a warrant to a man who lives there. A woman inside the house said she was armed and prepared to fire at them. That's when police say a man inside the house started shooting.

One of the deputies fired back. The woman and the man inside the house surrendered and were taken into custody. Deputies say they found more weapons on the property.

No one was hurt. Deputies say the man they were looking for was not at the home.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office says they can't comment about this case, saying only that it is still under investigation. They say they don't know if anyone was arrested or charged.
