Armed Standoff In Molino Ends Peacefully

June 30, 2012

A standoff in Molino between an armed man and Escambia County Sheriff’s deputies ended peacefully when he surrendered.

The incident began about 11:20 a.m. in the 5700 block of Shaag Road. The man was armed with a gun and threatened to harm himself or deputies. Deputies surrounded the man inside a brick home just south Omega Drive as they attempted to talk him into surrendering.

The man surrendered to deputies about an hour later, and deputies recovered a gun.

The man’s name has not been released by the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office. He was transported to West Florida Hospital for evaluation. file photo.

    That certainly IS a very good closure when he had a gun and was threatening
    himself and everyone else.

    Good JOB to the law enforcement who responded. I don’t know what this
    mans problem was, but it is a sad day for him and his family.

    Thanks again to our LEO’S, this could have gone much worse.

    Sounds like a lot of trouble on a hot day, down on Omega Rd.

    I am glad the ECSD was able to put a relatively happy ending on things.
