A Tyler man is in custody after allegedly shooting at his common-law wife, then holding police at bay for five hours.
It started about 1 a.m. at a home in the 500 of Herndon. Police say 30-year old Vearn Raibon attacked his wife, and fired a handgun at her. She was not shot, and was able to run to a neighbor's house.
Raibon barricaded himself inside. At about 6 a.m. he walked out on the porch, and that's when police fired a container of pepper powder at him.
He was taken to the Smith County Jail. His common law wife suffered just cuts and bruises.
