Madison County Sheriffs Deputies have taken a Stockbridge man into custody after he held police at bay with a shotgun for hours. The police showed up at his home to issue an arrest warrant on Stockbridge Valley Road but that's when the situation turned dangerous and the man pointed a shotgun at deputies, then they backed out of the house.
A SWAT team started negotiating with the suspect immediately and he eventually came out with his hands up just before two this afternoon. No word yet on the suspect's identity. One school about a half mile from the scene was placed on lockdown and police officers were dispatched there for safety reasons.
