Police Standoff Ends Peacefully in New Hope

New Hope

NEW HOPE, Ala. (WHNT) – A four-hour standoff in Madison County ended peacefully. Several people had to leave their homes for several hours until the standoff was over.

Madison County deputies responded to a report of gunfire coming from a home around 9:30 p.m. Thursday in the 100 block of Aldridge Circle in New Hope.

The homeowner refused to come to the door when deputies arrived.  Negotiators, along with the Madison County SWAT team, also responded about three-and-a-half hours later.

The SWAT team fired flash bang grenades into the home and rushed the homeowner.

HEMSI paramedics transported a woman from the home to Huntsville Hospital.

There were no injuries in the standoff.

Surrounding neighbors were allowed to go back into their homes around 2:00 a.m.

      Well, you just told us that the only reason you know what’s going on is you have an acquaintance from that area. So of course those of us who are just going by the news don’t know. Don’t waste our time asking stupid questions, Joe.
