Emergency Response Team Deploys For Second Time

For the second time Wednesday Greenville's emergency response team was called out.

The latest happened around 2:30 p.m. at Creekside Apartments on Wandsworth Drive.

Police say there was a brief hostage situation with a man wanted for an earlier fight on Watauga Avenue. Officers were told the man was armed with a gun.

The man, according to police, barricaded himself in an acquaintance's apartment with her two children.

Police say the situation was resolved in about 45 minutes with the man surrendering with no shots being fired.

Charges are pending against the man.

Several hours earlier the team responded to Brownlea Drive for a standoff with an armed man. That situation also ended peacefully.
