Investigation into Royalton Standoff Continues

One person, currently in the hospital, is expected to face felony charges after a standoff in Royalton on Sunday.

 

The name of the individual has not been released, but Franklin County Sheriff Don Jones said that a 911 call was received in which the caller indicated that a person intended to commit suicide and that the individual intended to “shoot it out” with anyone who interfered.

 

The Royalton Police Department and Franklin County Sheriff’s Department responded to the call and removed the individual from the house and suffered non life-threatening injuries.

 

The investigation is ongoing.
