Standoff at Ferguson home ends peacefully, man in custody
FERGUSON, MO - A standoff involving Ferguson law enforcement officers and a man believed to have shot his brother in the head ended peacefully after hours of negotiations.
Ferguson police spokesman Jeff Small says the suspect was taken into custody around 4:15 p.m. Tuesday.
The incident began nearly four hours earlier when police received a report of a shooting involving two brothers. Small says he hasn't heard of any weapons being pointed at officers during the standoff.
He says he doesn't know the condition of the victim, who was responsive when he was taken away by ambulance.
The St. Louis suburb has been at the center of attention since August, when 18-year-old Michael Brown, who was black, was fatally shot by a white Ferguson police officer.
