ATHENS, Ala. (WAFF) - The Limestone County Sheriff’s Office says it has one person in custody after a stand-off at a residence on Craft Rd.

Deputies on the scene say that someone entered the home, and was shot by the homeowner. The homeowner then barricaded himself in the home with his family when law enforcement arrived.

Investigators are not commenting on why this happened. But, deputies say the man let children and a woman go. He then surrendered without incident a short time later.

There’s no word right now on the name or condition of the person who was shot, or the person taken into custody.
