Two arrested in SWAT standoff

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Two men are behind bars after a standoff that locked down several Columbus schools.

It started as a home invasion yesterday on Perdue Avenue, but escalated when one of the suspects barricaded himself in the house with a gun, Sheriff Zach Scott said.

Seven schools on the city’s northeast side were locked down while deputies negotiated with Deantnony Richardson.

Deantnony, 28, and his 22-year-old brother William allegedly forced their way into the home at 2665 Perdue Avenue just before 12:30 p.m. and tried to hold up homeowner Dwayne Johnston at gunpoint, Scott said.

After Johnston escaped and called 911, officers caught William Richardson climbing out a window but Deantnony remained inside and refused to come out, Scott said.

The Sheriff’s Office SWAT team surrounded the home while Richardson kept them at bay for about four hours before he was arrested without incident, Scott said.

Scott says a handgun believed to be used by the suspects was recovered.

The two men are charged with aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary and kidnapping.
