INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — An Indianapolis SWAT team responded to a southeast side neighborhood early Thursday morning.

Police say they pulled over a man for speeding and driving the wrong way. He fled, leading police on a chase that ended at a home on Walcott Street near Keystone Avenue and Troy Avenue.

The man has no criminal history, according to police. Family members called authorities to say the man has guns inside the house, and officers said they saw him flush something down the toilet.

Other people inside the home were not being held against their will, police said.

The man was taken out of the house around 6 a.m. wearing handcuffs. Officers used smoke bombs to enter the house, according to police.
