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.
