According to Captain Paul Cody of the Gadsden Police Department the members of the Joint Special Operations Group spent about three hours Tuesday night at the scene of a domestic situation on Cansler Avenue.
Law enforcement was called to the location in response to a domestic dispute between the sister and brother at the residence. The woman reportedly told police her brother (quote) “…intended to shoot it out with police.” (end-quote)
After being on the scene for an extended period of time, law enforcement learned that the man in question had already left prior to their arrival.
No arrests have yet been made in connection with the incident.
