A Gibson County man is in custody after a two-hour standoff with deputies, stemming from a gun-related domestic disturbance.

According to the Gibson County Sheriffs Office, deputies arrived at a home around 7:00 PM, after a woman called 911 about a disturbance involving a hand-gun.

Officers were told that 40-year-old Justin Taylor fled the scene in a white Chevy Equinox, but was nowhere to be found when they arrived.

Upon investigation, officers found a handgun, a long gun, and his Equinox, but Taylor was no longer on scene.

Officers later received another call from the victim, saying that Taylor had returned with a gun.

Gibson County deputies surrounded the house for two-hours, before talking Taylor out, and taking him into custody.

It was an absolutely gorgeous afternoon throughout the Tri-State, but despite our seemingly endless supply of sunshine today, temperatures remained more than 10° cooler than the norm for this time of the year. Fortunately, today's peak temperature of 65° represents our coolest anticipated afternoon high temperature through the remainder of our extended forecast. While it is indeed encouraging that temperatures will gradually rise through the rest of the work week into the weekend ahead, we'll still have to deal with temperatures back down into the upper 30s and low 40s early Thursday morning.
