DOTHAN: This morning a male subject left the house with a shotgun. An alert Dothan Police Office encountered the suspect at the Vaughn Blumberg Park.
The incident was around 6:30 AM this morning.
When the subject was encountered by the Dothan officer the subject placed the shotgun to his head. That caused a stand off.
Dothan Police activated the specially trained team for negotiation. Dothan Police Major Steve Parrish responded to the scene.
After a brief stand off and negotiations Dothan Police were able to talk the subject into putting the shotgun down from his head and peacefully ending the stand off with no injuries to himself or others.
GOOD JOB to the alert officer that located the subject. And GOOD JOB to the specially trained officers that talked to the subject.
