Stand-Off With Kilgore Police

A stand-off with police in Kilgore ends with a suspect in custody. It started Monday night at a home on Longview street, behind the old Wingfield Lumber Company.
Police were called to the home around 5 o'clock for a domestic disturbance. While others ran out of the home, one man barricaded himself inside, alone.
Police surrounded it and tried to negotiate with him to come out. Around 9 o'clock, police shot four rounds of tear gas into the home. Shortly after that the man was taken into police custody.
Our photographer on the scene says he talked to a woman who identified the man as her son; Royce Lee Blankenship Jr. 
No word yet on what charges he will face. He will be arrained Tuesday.
