LINKWOOD, Md.- A suspect is in custody after a Sunday night police standoff in Dorchester County.          

The Dorchester County Sheriff's Office says that on Sunday, July 15, officers responded to a home on the 3600 block of Karen Circle for a reported domestic assault involving a gun.

When police arrived, they say an argument between 44-year-old Anthony Mace Hughes and his wife had escalated, and Hughes armed himself with a 410 gauge shotgun.

Maryland State Police were called to the scene where they made verbal contact with Hughes. Police say that at one point, Hughes released a child from the home, who was removed to safety.

Police kept in contact with Hughes for 30-45 minutes.  Hughes eventually came to the front door but would not come out, according to police.

Police say he later opened the door and made physical contact with Dorchester County Sheriff James Phillips. According to police, the suspect pointed a loaded weapon at Phillips' chest and an altercation between the suspect and Phillips ensued. Police say suspect was quickly overwhelmed and disarmed by the sheriff and other personnel. There were no injuries in the standoff.

Hughes was charged with several counts of assault, reckless endangerment, and wearing and carrying a deadly weapon.

He was jailed on $250,000 bond.
