Police arrested a man accused of shooting at a Winston-Salem police officer and then barricading himself inside an apartment.

Antonio Deshawn Barr, 29, of Winston-Salem, faces multiple charges including assault with a deadly weapon on a government official, possession of a firearm by a felon and discharging a firearm in the city limits.

Officers were called to the Green Oaks apartment complex at 2550 Green Oaks Court shortly after 7 p.m. Saturday after a report of a shooting.

Cpl. K. S. Caffey entered the complex in her police car and heard a man yell at her, according to a police press release.

The man then allegedly fired two rounds at her from a handgun and ran inside an apartment.

Police and SWAT team crews responded and took the suspect into custody after a brief standoff, according to police.

Caffey has been with the Winston-Salem police for seven years and currently serves in the patrol division. She was not hurt.

Anyone with any information can call CrimeStoppers at (336) 727-2800.

Showers are tapering off early Tuesday, and we're left with areas of dense fog for your Tuesday morning commute. We'll have clearing skies and warmer temperatures ahead for your Tuesday afternoon, but the next wet system will arrive on Wednesday. Some showers will linger Thursday, but we'll dry and and become chilly late this week. A substantial wet system will then bring heavy rain and snow to our region from Sunday through at least the start of next week.
