Standoff in Talent after family argument
Police had to surround a home in Talent Tuesday after a man threatened family members at gunpoint.
Police say they received a call yesterday morning about a dispute between a husband and wife in the Candlewood Park Manufactured Home Development on Colver Road.
When the couple’s adult son went to see what the dispute was about, the father pointed a gun at him and his mother.
No shots were fired and the mother and son escaped, but the gunman remained inside the home, refusing to talk to police until ending the standoff three hours later. The man has been taken into custody.
