Yukon standoff ends after man surrenders

Ponca City Now - December 31, 2015 9:35 am

YUKON, Okla. (AP) – Authorities in Oklahoma City say a man has surrendered to police after an hours-long standoff that began when a bail bondsman was attempting to serve a warrant on him.

Police say the standoff began Tuesday afternoon at an auto repair shop near Yukon High School. Authorities say the suspect fired shots at a bail bondsman who was serving a felony warrant for not showing up for a court appearance on drug charges.

Police say the man barricaded himself inside the auto body shop for hours. The suspect eventually surrendered at about 4 a.m. Wednesday. No one was injured in the incident.
