Officers had responded to the area for a burglary call from a neighbor who said Judy entered his home and locked himself in the bathroom, police said.
By the time officers arrived, Judy was back in his own home, police said.
Shortly after officers tried to make contact with Judy, whom they said could be heard moving about in the garage, he began shooting at them.
Startled officers took cover as rounds from the weapon hit a vehicle parked in the driveway.
A special assignments unit team reached the scene and began negotiations with Judy.
