Armed Man Barricades Himself Inside Spring Hill Home, SWAT Brings Standoff to an End
SPRING HILL – One person is in protective custody after a two-hour standoff on Mayberry Road ended peacefully.
Dozens of onlookers watched as deputies surrounded the residence located at the 12000 block of Mayberry Road, where sources say a man barricaded himself inside after making suicidal statements.
There are unconfirmed reports that the man was armed with several handguns and that he repeatedly brought them to the front door of the residence, while negotiators tried to convince him to surrender.
SWAT members positioned themselves around the home and waited for the man to exit the residence. Around 6:30 p.m. the man walked out of the front door and was taken into custody without further incident.
Officials say the man is not expected to face criminal charges.
