The investigation continues into a Taylorsville accident that turned into an armed standoff last week.
As previously reported, on Wednesday, January 24th, around 1:30 pm, the driver of a pickup traveling west on Main Street struck a pair of utility poles. The driver stopped across on Main Street across from Reformation Lutheran Church.
When emergency crews and Taylorsville Police arrived it was learned the man was armed and threatening to shoot himself.
Main Street was closed for several blocks. Nearby Taylorsville Elementary School, Taylorsville First Baptist Daycare and Alexander Central High School were all placed under Code-In status.
The standoff lasted for nearly an hour. A shot was fired by the driver of the truck. He was not injured, nor was anyone else according to Taylorsville Police.
The subject later surrendered the weapon and was taken to a medical facility for treatment. No update on the man involved in the incident has been released.
On Monday morning, Taylorsville Police Chief Michael Millsaps said “This case has a lot of moving parts. We have conducted a number of interviews and are still having conversations with several people. Once we complete this process, I feel that charges will be filed.”
