South Shreveport Standoff Ends Peacefully
A six-hour-long standoff in the 7700 block of Woodfield -- not far from Woodlawn High School -- has ended peacefully. It all started just after 10:45 last night when a man forced his way into a house in the 6200 block of Dillingham and stole a pickup truck at gunpoint. But that GMC pickup was equipped with Onstar and police were able to pinpoint its location. When they finally got it stopped on Woodfield, the driver refused to get out and, instead, produced a handgun. So officers backed off and negotiators were called in. Just before five, they were able to take the man into custody.
