Update: Law Enforcement Settles Standoff Peacefully; Will Provide Assistance in Follow-up

A stand-off involving Sulphur Springs Police, Hopkins County Deputies and an elderly man with a weapon began on South Locust Street Thursday afternoon and concluded a short time later. The one elderly male in a residence was armed and according to a friend that got out of the house was only threatening himself. Police Chief Jay Sanders told KSST News that the event ended peacefully with local law enforcement assuring the man of assistance with specific issues that triggered the event.

The man’s friend had been told to evacuate the residence if he didn’t want to be involved in a stand-off with police, according to law enforcement sources.  The friend called 911. The officers were seeking a peaceful end to the engagement.
