UPDATE: Authorities Release Limited Details From Sunday Stand-Off In Carroll

Limited details have been released regarding a nearly 11-hour stand-off that began in Carroll Sunday evening. According to the Carroll Police Department, officers responded to a report of harassment from the 100 block of W. 12th Street for an individual entering a property without permission. Law enforcement received a secondary report of a disturbance involving the same individual in the 1100 block of N. Adams Street at approximately 6:34 p.m. Authorities say the subject barricaded himself inside his residence after displaying a firearm, and officers withdrew from the property to establish a perimeter. Law enforcement surrounded the home, blocking traffic for an approximately one-block radius. According to Police Chief Brad Burke, the situation was resolved around 5 a.m. when law enforcement determined the suspect was not a threat to the public and cleared the scene. While the subject did possess a weapon, Burke notes he did not make any direct threats to law enforcement or brandish the firearm. Officials did not identify the subject involved in the stand-off but indicated charges are pending the completion of the investigation. The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office and Carroll County Emergency Medical Services also assisted at the scene.
