Daleville Standoff

There were several anxious moments during a pre-dawn hostage incident just outside the Daleville City limits along the Dale-Houston County line Tuesday morning.

Authorities say the incident began after a routine traffic stop ended in the suspect's driveway on Nathan Drive.

While the officer was speaking to the driver, the unnamed suspect reportedly came out on the porch and fired at least one shot from a long gun.

He then reportedly barricaded himself inside.

There was a woman and a young child inside.

Neighbors were evacuated and after a short period, authorities talked the suspect back out without further incident.

He was arrested and transported to the Dale County Jail in Ozark.

We will have more on the stand-off on tonight News 4.
