Standoff in Simpsonville Leads to School Lock Downs

Not sure if this has been taken care of yet, it started jut a little while ago. Police were serving a warrant on a man in Simpsonville who decided to barricade himself in his house. I assume the house, 7 Durbin Creek Road, is close to two separate schools as both were locked down.

From Fox Carolina:

Susan Clarke, of the Greenville County School District, said Bryson Elementary School and Golden Strip Child Development Center were locked down as a precaution because they were close to the law enforcement situation.

Matt Armstrong, of the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office, said deputies were trying to serve arrest warrants to a man when he barricaded himself in the house. He said that authorities are inside the home, but the man does have weapons with him.

Hopefully the man will wise up and surrender before anyone gets hurt.
