Standoff In Northern Kentucky Ends
Police say a military veteran who barricaded himself inside a home for more than 19 hours has surrendered.
Covington police say that Michael Vaughan started a fire at the home and then began shooting at police. He surrendered Sunday after being shot in the arm. Police have not said what charges he will face as a result of the standoff.
Officers went to the home Saturday after received calls that Vaughan had been making distressing comments on Facebook. Vaughan posted that he had no reason to live after his girlfriend left him. When police arrived at the home, Vaughan was holed up inside with his three children, ages 15, 11 and 6. After a long negotiation with authorities, Vaughan eventually released the children Sunday morning.
