MEDFORD, Wis. (WEAU) -- Investigators put a man in jail after a standoff.

It happened Tuesday afternoon. The Taylor County Sheriff's Office says Timothy Phillips, 42, of the Medford area was arrested after a fight. Deputies say they took a report of a man with a gun around 12:45 p.m. Tuesday. The caller said the man went in a home on Perkins Street, east of Medford, and fired a shot through a window.
