HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — A police standoff in Huntington ends peacefully with one person being arrested.

DeMarco Roosevelt Bradberry, 36, of Huntington, was arrested after he exited a home he was hiding in. He is charged with first degree robbery.

Police said Bradberry allegedly threatened a man who lives in the 500 block of 6th Street with a gun and forced him into his home and demanded money. Bradberry then fled from the home where the crime occurred to a nearby home on the same street.

After a brief standoff, Bradberry along with seven other people who were hiding in the home, exited the residence one-by-one.

    Great job by the HPD to ensure no one got hurt! Sounds to me like a young man on drugs trying to get some drug money. He needs rehab and punishment for endangering the lives of others. Good thing for him he made it out alive. According to the story he ran in the home of the seven that came out with him. Wonder if they knew him?
