Barricade situation ends in Durham

Tuesday, March 26, 2013

Despite tear gas being fired into a home and pleas from negotiators, police said a Durham man refused to come out of his house leading to a standoff.

The standoff on Barnsdale Court lasted several hours  Tuesday afternoon.

The front door was eventually knocked down and the man brought out in handcuffs.

Police say they were originally called to the house after a security guard said he was threatened.

Some people had to evacuate their homes during the standoff and others were forced to stay inside for safety reasons.

The man was not arrested and police have not filed charged against him. He was taken to a local facility for evaluation.
