Police: Denton Barricade Situation Resolved

Posted: Updated:

DENTON, Md.- Denton police say an all-day standoff ended Thursday night with a man being taken into custody. 

Lt. George W. Bacorn Jr. of the Denton Police Department said the incident happened at a home in the area of Canvasback Lane and Market Street. Bacorn said a 32-year-old man barricaded himself inside the home and police had been on the scene since around 7:15 a.m.

Bacorn described the incident as a "check welfare" type of situation. He said members of the Maryland State Police tactical team surrounded the home in case entry had to be made. Bacorn said police negotiators were also on scene to make contact with the man in order to convince him to come out. Nobody else was inside the home, according to Bacorn.

People who were living in the area were told to stay inside their homes until the situation was over. In addition, all parents living in the affected area were requested to make arrangements to pick their children up from school. 

On Thursday night, police announced that the barricade situation was resolved. On early Friday morning, police said the man, whose name has not been released, had been taken into custody. There is no word on his status or if he will face any charges.
