Standoff Ends Peacefully


Gunshots, tear gas, camouflage, and riot gear was all part of a four hour standoff in Greenville Wednesday night that went into Thursday morning.
Greenville Police called in its Emergency Response Team when they received calls that shots had been fired at 4812 Lancaster Gate. When police arrived, the standoff began. Police say 39 year-old Randy Rogers wouldn't leave his home, and that he was armed. They eventually fired tear gas inside the mobile home, which is when Rogers surrendered peacefully. Police found a number of guns in the home, some even semi-automatic -- a crime in itself, since Rogers is a convicted felon and can't legally own a gun.
