An Escambia County man is behind bars today after a SWAT stand off Wednesday night.

Just after 7 p.m. Wednesday, the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office responded to a shots fired disturbance in the 1000 block of North 57th Avenue where they discovered 61-year old Dennis Scott Dunbabin had allegedly fire a handgun at two people. There were no injuries.

Dunbabin entered a residence, and when repeated attempts to make contact with him failed, the SWAT team responded.

Abourt four hours later, Dunbabin was taken into custody and charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, discharging a weapon in public and aggravated assault. He was booked into the Escambia County Jail without bond.

    How selfish. He better have a mental issue or something wrong with his brain to do this.

    Great job deputies/swat love seeing the pros in action. Can never give y’all enough thanks.

    in over 30 swat calls over the past 7 years, not a single person has been seriously hurt or killed by swat. This is a testament to the professionalism and skill of that team.

    He can count himself very lucky to be alive after his use of a gun when the SWAT team was sent to defuse the situation. Most situations do not end so good for the accused where there is a gun been fired in the process.
