PORT ST. LUCIE, FL (WFLX) - A Port St. Lucie police officer was shot overnight while responding to a domestic dispute, according to Port St. Lucie police spokesperson Sgt. Frank Sabol.

Events first unfolded around 8:40 p.m. when a neighbor living in the 1100 block of Southwest Estaugh Avenue called to complain about loud noises coming from a nearby residence.

Police checked the complaint and left the scene.

They returned to the same house around 11 p.m. when a teen called 911 from the home.

Inside was a man later identified by police as 54-year-old Robert Lee Frey II.

Police say his wife, a 15-year-old son and a 12-year-old daughter ran out of the home when officers arrived.

Police say Frey had a shotgun and, afraid he would commit suicide, police shot him with "less lethal ammunition," which is designed to incapacitate -- but not kill -- a target, officers said.

That's when police say he fired back at officers and one was struck in the leg.

A standoff between the suspect and officers lasted about 6 hours until the man surrendered and was taken into custody.
 
Frey was arrested in 2002 on domestic battery charges in Palm Beach County.

The officer who was injured has been released from the hospital.

Officers are now waiting for search warrant to go inside and comb for more evidence.
