VIDEO: 19-Hour Ky. Barricade Incident Ends with Suspect Surrender

An Army veteran who held Covington, Ky., police at bay for more than 19 hours, set fire to the house he had barricaded himself in, and exchanged gunfire with officers was taken into custody Sunday afternoon, WCPO TV reports.

Covington police confirmed the arrest of Michael Vaughan, 43. After sustaining a gunshot wound to his arm he surrendered to officers.

"Vaughan once again engaged our officers from elevated position with a rifle. We returned fire in Vaughan's direction and struck him one time that we are aware of," said Covington Police Chief Spike Jones.

The standoff in the Latonia neighborhood of Covington began at 5 p.m. Saturday after police responded to requests from callers concerned about Vaughan making distressing comments on Facebook.

As a former SWAT operator it's good to know that no one was injured during this incident. Good job to all those involved ESPECIALLY SWAT. Hopefully they can get this soldier the help he deserves.
