An Indian Creek man is now in jail. Police said 39-year-old Richard Valadez fired a shot in his home after getting into a fight with his family.

According to police, Valadez had locked his wife and children out of their Indian Creek home Friday night after the wife left to pick up the three children.

Valadez fired a shot inside the home while the wife and three children were outside prompting the wife to call 911.

Friday night officers were unable to make contact with Valadez.

The Brown County Sheriff's Office said officers returned with a warrant Monday -- and Valadez fired a shot inside the home.

Gas canisters had to be shot inside the home in order to get him out.

He is now in the Brown County Jail.
