Standoff in South Billings

BILLINGS -

A 34-year old Billings man was taken into custody Saturday night after a several hour standoff.

Billings police were called to a home on Washington Street around 3:45 on a domestic disturbance complaint. When officers arrived on the scene, the suspect fled on a bicycle. Police say they located him again in the area of State Avenue and 9th Avenue South, where the suspect pulled a handgun from his bag and pointed it at his head. He began walking through the residential area, still holding the gun to his head, and refusing to cooperate with officers.

Police, Yellowstone County Sheriff's deputies and Highway Patrol troopers cordoned off several blocks during the standoff. After about four hours, deputies were able to fire beanbag rounds from a shotgun to subdue him. Officers took him into custody without further incident. The suspect was taken to the Billings Clinic and treated for minor injuries. He was then taken to the Yellowstone County Detention Facility. He was arrested for Felony Partner Family Member Assault, Obstructing a Peace Officer, and Criminal Possession of Dangerous Drugs.

No officers were hurt during the standoff.
