Continuing to track rain/snow showers throughout southeast Colorado this morning as wet, gloomy and cool conditions continue. If you are hitting the roads in the higher elevation (Teller/Fremont/Custer/ Monument) make sure you allow a little extra time as some roads may be a little snow covered. Wet pavement remains everywhere else. We'll see rain/snow showers continue for most of our Monday, clearing out before midnight. Head on over to the "Weather" tab for a full look at the week ahead.
Police say they got a call just before 9:00 pm on Tuesday night of a domestic disturbance in the 2900 block of Roche Dr. near Vickers and Union. They have now issued a warrant for the man who barricaded himself in the house with a gun.
Police tell 11 News the man allegedly assaulted a woman in the home and the story was confirmed by the couple's 6-year-old daughter.
During the stand-off, Police were told the man had access to a gun inside of the house. Due to the danger the man could pose to police, or to himself, they decided to get the victims to safety and issue a warrant for his arrest.
He is wanted on charges of third degree assault, harassment, and child abuse.
