Police Engage in Hour-Long Standoff with Suicidal Subject


Officers from the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department were involved in a standoff late Wednesday night with a suicidal subject.

The officers were asked to perform a welfare check on a person residing in the 7000 block of 11A Road in Plymouth. The man had reportedly contacted a suicide hotline and expressed a desire to harm himself. When officers from the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department and the Argos and Bourbon Police Departments arrived at the scene, they found a man armed with a gun. The officers were then involved in a standoff with the man.

After approximately one hour, the man exited his residence, dropped his gun and surrendered to police.

He was transported to a mental health facility to receive treatment.
