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.
