OCEAN PINES, Del.-  An Ocean Pines man is in custody after a barricade situation Sunday.

Ocean Pines Police received information that a 21-year-old man was making threats against himself and anyone coming in contact with him at his home on Point Lookout Road. Officers were told the suspect had weapons inside and had previous mental health issues. 

Ocean Pines Police cordoned off the area, and requested assistance from the Ocean City Police Quick Response Team (SWAT) and their Hostage Negotiation Unit.

Ocean City Police Hostage Negotiators began negotiating with the suspect. After a period of negotiation, the suspect agreed to give himself safely up to police. There were no injuries, and the entire incident lasted for 6 hours before the incident was successfully resolved.

The suspect was taken into custody and taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury for psychiatric evaluation. Police say they did find weapons inside the house.

Chief David Massey of the Ocean Pines Police Department stated, “In today’s troubled times, police are often called to assist in volatile incidents that could be life threatening. The cooperation among all police and fire units on the scene of this mental health incident ensured that everyone went home safely.”
