Mooringsport Man Arrested After 8-Hour Police Standoff
A Mooringsport man was arrested Thursday morning following a stand-off in north Caddo Parish.
Caddo Deputies were called to a domestic disturbance on Mooringsport Latex Road just after 1 a.m. Thursday (12/16/21) morning. When Police arrived at the location, they were met outside by the victim and a small child. A Caddo Corporal entered the residence and encountered 34 year-old Jacob Seth Cannon who had barricaded himself in a bedroom. She attempted to speak with Cannon and also smelled an accelerant inside the home. Cannon then threw an accelerant at the Corporal and threatened to light himself and her on fire.
The Corporal then ran outside and notified deputies. The Sheriff’s Office Special Response Team, negotiators, and detectives responded. During the negotiations, Cannon fired at least one shot from a pistol inside the residence. SRT deputies entered the residence just before 8 a.m. and took Cannon into custody. He was booked into Caddo Correctional Center for aggravated assault on a peace officer, domestic abuse battery (second offense), and domestic abuse battery with child endangerment.
The case remains under investigation by detectives with the Sheriff’s Office.
