FELTON, Del. (WBOC)- A Felton man is in custody after Delaware State Police responded to a suspected barricade situation late Tuesday morning in Kent County.

Troopers said there was reason to believe Patrick Billings, 43, had barricaded himself inside a home on Sportsman Road near Felton after a domestic incident outside the house. Investigators said a woman involved and her children were able to get away.

Special ops did not end up finding Billings during a search of the property. Instead, after nearly four hours he was found and taken into custody in a nearby field.

Police said it was unclear during their initial response whether Billings had access to a gun.

"As a precautionary measure the houses immediately surrounding the residence were evacuated to ensure the safety and protection of the people who live in those homes," said DSP Master Cpl. Gary Fournier.

Billings was already wanted for failure to appear in Kent County Superior Court, according to police. They said Billings will now also be charged with violation of a family court order.
