BREAKING NEWS UPDATE: The suspect in the Hancock County standoff is in custody and being taken back to the Hancock County Sheriff's office.
Investigators confirm they tossed a flash bang device in the house, and once it detonated, the suspect could be heard saying he was coming out.
They also say numerous shots were fired at officers who surrounded the Deerwood Road property. We have no reports of any officers being wounded.
Reporters at the scene of a standoff in north Hancock County say they heard at least two gunshots. At the time, they weren't sure who fired those shots. Because of the situation, the media was pushed away from the scene, and ordered to leave their lights off. Seconds after they moved, somebody said deputies were moving in.
WLOX News has confirmed one person near the scene of a Hancock County standoff was shot in the leg and taken to the hospital. That word comes from Chief Deputy Don Bass.
Bass tells WLOX News that victim is not the person who's barricaded in a building on Deerwood Road near Fenton Dedeaux Road. We're told that property is near the Fenton fire station.
Initial reports said it was on Fenton Dedeaux Road. Now, we're told the scene is on Deerwood Road.
Investigators have not said why the suspect was holding deputies at bay. And they would not give specifics about what is happening at the scene.
