Charges pending for man involved in police standoff in Independence

INDEPENDENCE, Ky. (WKRC) -- A man who held police at bay at a home in Independence, will likely face charges.

Police responded to the home on Pathfinder Court in the Hunters Green subdivision at 6:15 Tuesday evening, because a man with a gun had barricaded himself inside. He had a shotgun and was threatening to harm himself.

Many people in the area received a reverse 911 call telling them to stay inside their homes.
After several hours of negotiations, the man surrendered to police at about 10:30. While searching the home, police also found elements of what appeared to be a meth lab. The man was taken to St. Elizabeth for evaluation. Police say charges are pending.
