A man is now being questioned by Fort Worth police following a two-hour stand-off that ended about 3 a.m.  

The impasse began with a 911 call telling police about a man with a gun sitting on the front porch of a home on Park Street near Jacksboro Highway in northwest Fort Worth.

The caller said the man had already fire at least two shots in the air.

Police surrounded the home and tried to talk the man into giving it up.  

He finally did and was taken into custody with no one getting hurt.
