Two Wounded In Police Standoff

A tense standoff in Harrison County took place last night as officials responded to a shooting that began as a family dispute. It happened around 10 p.m. at a home in the 7900 block of FM 2208. Investigators say a step father and step son fired shots at each other inside the home.  

Police say Jason Gibson shot his step father, John Morrison, then barricaded himself in the home. After a three-hour standoff, Longview SWAT officers fired teargas into the home and took Gibson into custody.

Morrison was hospitalized with wounds to his arm. Gibson had wounds to his shoulder and head when taken into custody. Their conditions have not been released.
