A standoff between a man who barricaded himself inside a home in the Merry Canyon area off the Chumstick Highway north of Leavenworth ended early Thursday evening with no serious injuries. Chelan County Sheriff Brian Burnett says the situation started a bit after nine a.m. after deputies received a welfare check regarding a man who was despondent and possibly armed. Burnett says the man, whose name was not immediately available, was involved in a domestic situation in Seattle on Wednesday.
No one else was in the residence. The Chelan County Regional SWAT team and other law enforcement officers were called to the scene. The standoff ended around five p.m.
Burnett says no shots were fired and there were no injuries to officers.
