EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

A standoff in Evansville ends with the suspect in custody.

Police have identified him as 56-year-old Brian Scott Fleming.

The standoff started a little after nine Thursday night in the 200 block of East Delaware Street, just off North Main.  Police said they heard gunshots just as they were about to serve a warrant there.

Fleming was wanted on two felony warrants and, according to a police report, he's now facing a resisting arrest charge as well.

The standoff came to an end just after 10:30 when we're told the SWAT team fired pepper gas into the apartment.

No one was hurt.

Police said he tested positive meth, opiates, and alcohol. 

They said it's Fleming's 43rd arrest in Vanderburgh County since 2004. 

Officers said Fleming told them he hoped the court would give him another chance.
