(Joplin, Mo.) — Sgt William Davis of the Joplin Police Department updated us on the tense situation in the 2200 BL SOUTH JACKSON.

Just before 8:00 PM Monday evening, JPD responded to a call of a disturbance that then turned into a domestic disturbance. The male involved, now identified as 37-year-old, Jason Price of Joplin, fled into a neighboring home, not his home, and barricaded himself inside, 2209 ½ South Jackson.

Price began threatening law enforcement in specific ways. Joplin Police were familiar with him and his history with law enforcement. So for a short time JPD SWAT were on standby.

JPD surrounded the home on the alley, 2209 ½ South Jackson, talked with the Price, diffused the situation and initially he was detained.

The female involved in the domestic situation was also detained initially.

This is a continuing investigation and more charges could follow.
