(CNN/WBAL)  An hours-long police standoff in Maryland was apparently sparked by someone taking a bite out of a man's grilled-cheese sandwich. Officers were called to a house in Baltimore County on Sunday night for a domestic dispute.

A woman and her daughter ran to police, saying an enraged man inside was firing off gunshots. They told officers a grilled-cheese sandwich had just been made for the suspect, and someone took a bite. Police said the suspect, Daniel Brian Blackwell, got upset over his wife, or someone else, taking a bite of his grilled-cheese sandwich.  

"Right now we don't know if there were any mental issues or if that was alcohol or drugs involved. We're going to continue to look around the house, clear the house and see what we can find,” officer Shawn Vinson said. “And the man will be taken to a local hospital for an evaluation to see why this enraged him so much about this grilled cheese sandwich.” 

Police asked neighbors to shelter in place during the four-hour incident. Blackwell was taken into custody, and will eventually face charges.
