Oak Grove Police successfully ended a very dangerous standoff situation safely Thursday afternoon.
A call came in late in the afternoon that a man with PTSD was threatening to harm himself at an Allen Court residence. He was reportedly armed with two handguns and a rifle and was holding his wife and two children hostage at one point. Officers talked to the man on the phone and were eventually able to coax him outside of the home where they took him into custody. He was taken to Blanchfield Army Community Hospital.
The man, his family and police were all safe at the end of the standoff around 5:45pm.
