SWAT used to arrest man accused of two attempted murders
JACKSON- A man faces charges following a standoff with authorities that happened after he shot two people, the East Feliciana Parish Sheriff's office said.
Clyde Bennett Mills, 35, of 959 Tom Mills Lane was booked on two counts of attempted second degree murder with no bond Friday.
Investigators said he shot one person in the head and a second in the chest at a home on his street late Thursday night. More than twelve hours later, sheriff's deputies went to arrest him and he would not cooperate.
Inside, "he had immediate access to firearms," a spokesperson said.
SWAT from East Baton Rouge assisted when Mills refused to come out of the house. After about four hours of negotiating, Mills exited and was taken into custody.
The victims were taken to an area hospital and were last listed in stable condition.
UPDATE 11/30/2015 - Authorities said Clyde Mills pleaded guilty to attempted manslaughter charges in 2015.
