Standoff in Antlers ends peacefully

By  | 

ANTLERS, Okla. -- The holidays took a dangerous turn for law enforcement in Antlers, Oklahoma on Monday. An Oklahoma Highway Patrol spokesman says a nearly three-hour standoff has ended peacefully.

Authorities say the man fired shots inside his home Monday morning. Officials say he did not take any hostages, and no one was in danger but law enforcement did block off a two-block radius around the home on Northeast D and Eighth Street.

Troopers are not releasing the man's name, but do say he has a prior criminal history.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol negotiators talked to the man for about fifty minutes. Then they say he dismantled his weapon, walked out the front door, and was taken into custody.

No word on what charges the man faces.
