Stand-off Ends Peacefully in Owens Cross Roads

OWENS CROSS ROADS, Ala. (WHNT) – A potentially dangerous situation came to a peaceful resolve on Friday night when police peacefully ended a standoff with a man who barricaded himself inside his house.

It all started earlier Friday evening when the Madison County Sheriff’s Office got a call from the family of a man who had made threats against himself.

Deputies performed a well-fare check on the man and found him barricaded inside a residence on Victorian Lane, just off of Highway 431.

A SWAT team was called in, and after a few hours, the decision was made to enter the residence.

The man was found unresponsive, but unharmed inside the residence. He was taken to the hospital for treatment.

Authorities said that no charges are currently pending against the man and they are satisfied with the outcome of this incident.
