Authorities say initial efforts to get 32-year-old Bryant Matti to surrender weren't successful and it turned into a standoff.

Gun shots were heard from inside the home and officers forced their way in.

They located a 20-year-old woman from La Crosse with a gunshot wound to her lower right leg.

Matti was arrested.

Both Matti and the woman were taken to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.
