A police officer has life-threatening injuries after being shot during a standoff in North Dakota, police said.

Law enforcement officials responded to a domestic dispute in North Fargo, where a suspect was barricaded inside a home and had been firing shots at officers who responded to the scene.

Fargo Deputy Police Chief Joe Anderson told the Associated Press the incident began around 7 p.m. Wednesday. A caller told dispatchers his father had possibly fired a gun at his mother.

Anderson said the caller and the suspect's wife were able to leave the home unharmed. The suspect then began to fire multiple rounds out of the house.

One of these rounds allegedly struck 33-year-old officer Jason Moszer.

He was taken to a medical facility with his family. Moszer is not expected to survive, the AP reported.

The standoff is ongoing and residents have been told to stay indoors.

Anderson said authorities have not made contact with the suspect. Police said the suspect may have also suffered a gunshot wound during the standoff.
