Standoff ends peacefully


(Cincinati)— A stand off in Appanoose County Tuesday is under investigation.

Shortly after 3:30 a.m. the Appanoose County Law Center received a report of two adult brothers arguing at 205 East Pleasant Street inCincinnati. The caller reported that during the argument gunshots were heard and one of the men had been shot.

As law enforcement arrived on the scene, one of the males left the house and the second brother displayed a dangerous weapon and threatened a deputy sheriff.  The male then barricaded himself inside the house.

During the standoff, the subject inside the house threatened to shoot law enforcement officers.  During tense negotiations with the subject, he was convinced to surrender.  At 5:12 a.m. he was taken into custody and taken to a local hospital for evaluation.  Several weapons were removed from the house.

Charges are pending against the unidentified subject.  The other brother was located unharmed.
