Standoff In South Florida Ends Peacefully

Police_Line2_2013WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A standoff with a convicted felon has ended peacefully after authorities say a South Florida man fired at bail bonds agents as they tried to arrest him.

Palm Beach County sheriff’s officials say bail bonds agents arrived at Kenneth Burroughs’ home Friday night and were shot at by Burroughs. The suspect eventually came out of his home and was charged with aggravated assault with a firearm, felon in possession of a firearm, shooting within a dwelling, and child neglect. Authorities say Burroughs has several past felony convictions.

A search warrant of Burroughs’ home allegedly turned up a shot gun, pistol and a revolver. Inside the home, authorities said several rounds of ammunition had been fired. Eleven shotgun shell casings were found throughout the residence.
