A Tallmadge standoff ends peacefully after a man barricaded himself inside his home for nearly four hours.
Officers were called around 11 p.m.on a report of shots fired inside of a home in the 1100 block of Woods Drive.
Officers found a spent shell casing on the patio of the home and a female and two teenagers came outside.
Larry G. Beall Jr., who lives in the residence, refused to come out and showed officers a gun.
Authorities say Beall told officers that he wanted to die.
The Summit County Sheriff’s SWAT team was called in and began negotiating with the Beall, who eventually surrendered at 2:50 a.m.
No additional shots were fired and no injuries were reported. Beall is currently in a local hospital.
Once released, Beall will face charges of disrupting public service and using weapons while intoxicated among other charges.
