Chickasaw standoff

A male suspect is in custody after a standoff with police inside a home in Chickasaw on Saturday, October 12.

He has been identified as 39-year-old Bruce Peek. 

Peek faces a domestic violence third charge as well as discharging a firearm in the city limits and resisting arrest. 

Police say shots were fired prior to the arrival of police. They say Peek fired a handgun, 'up into the door frame of the home and not towards an individual."

The public safety director said members of the Chickasaw SWAT unit took the man into custody at 4:40 p.m. 

No injuries were reported.
