FLORENCE, AL (WAFF) -

A Florence man involved in a standoff with Florence Police and SWAT is out of the hospital.

Police said Terry Hankins was holed up at a home near the intersection of College Terrace and Nance Street in Florence, Monday.

Hankins is suspected in a robbery and domestic violence incident over the weekend.

When officers tried to take him into custody, he barricaded himself in an attic inside his girlfriend's home for more than six hours.

SWAT fired more than two dozen canisters of gas before he surrendered.

Hankins was treated at a local hospital before being booked into jail.
