A four-hour standoff between an Akron father and police ended peacefully just before midnight Wednesday, officers said.

Vincente Castellano Jr., 39, of North Firestone Boulevard, was arrested on charges of domestic violence, aggravated menacing and using a weapon while intoxicated.

Police were first called to the home in the 300 block of North Firestone Boulevard at about 8 p.m. when a woman contended Castellano was intoxicated and had fired a gun into the bedroom floor during an argument.

The woman talked to officers outside of the house and said four children, ages 10, 15, 16 and 18, were still inside the house with Castellano.

SWAT officers surrounded the house and during the next four hours communicated with the teens using a cell phone and their Facebook accounts. The children eventually walked outside and Castellano subsequently surrendered at the urging of police negotiators, police said.
