Here is a release from the Indiana State Police:
During the early morning hours Friday, the Linton City Police Department was called to 79 South East 3rd Street to investigate an individual who was allegedly involved in an earlier altercation in downtown Linton. During the reported altercation, it was alleged that both participants suffered knife and other injuries during a fight.
When officers arrived at the home on SE 3rd Street, the resident, who is a suspect in the earlier knife fight, refused to cooperate with officers and subsequently barricaded himself inside his home. The suspect was in the home with his three children, aged approximately 10, 12 and 14 years.
Just after six a.m., the suspect sent his ten year old son out of the home with a two-way radio to communicate with officers. The child was not permitted to reenter the residence and was sent away with family members.
During the seven o'clock hour while negotiations were taking place, officers heard two shots fired within the residence. Officers did not return fire as it was unknown where the shots were placed. The standoff continued and just after 11:00 a.m., the two older children left the residence without incident. Police continued to attempt to negotiate with the suspect until just after 1:00 p.m., when Indiana State Police Emergency Response Officers made entry into the home after the suspect had fallen asleep. The suspect taken into custody was identified as Ian Long, 38 of Linton. Suspect Long was arrested for a Greene County warrant for Intimidation. The investigation surrounding today's events will be completed and sent to the Greene County Prosecutor for his review of any further charges.
After Mr. Long was taken into custody, investigating officers removed one firearm from the residence. That firearm will remain in police custody by court order under the terms of the "Jake Laird Law." This law, enacted in 2006 after the shooting of Indianapolis Police Officer Jake Laird, allows officers to immediately seize firearms from emotionally unstable and or violent individuals and, with court approval, retain the firearms until further order of the responsible court.
