STANDOFF ENDS PEACEFULLY IN MT. VERNON

MT. VERNON, IL — A Thursday morning incident in Mt. Vernon ended peacefully when an armed man surrendered to local police following a domestic incident on the southwest side of town.

According to Mt. Vernon Police Chief Trent Page, around 11:39 a.m., a female caller reported the domestic incident to dispatch.

While she was on the phone, a male subject reportedly retrieved a firearm and began threatening to harm himself.

The man ultimately left the home with the weapon and went into the nearby woods.

Police were unable to contact the man but were concerned about his safety due to a report of a shot being fired.

Page says after approximately two hours, the subject came out of the woods and was taken to a local medical facility for an evaluation.
