Man barricades himself in home


MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A man who barricaded himself in a home was taken into custody Monday.

Deputies were serving a drug warrant in the 800 block of Maple when the man ran into a home.

Two people who were inside the home got out.

They and two others already outside were detained for questioning.

The man inside the home, identified as 24-year-old Rodenick Winston, shot at the officers, who returned fire.

No one was hurt, and Watson barricaded himself in the home for a short time before surrendering.

Deputies then found two stolen weapons inside the home.

Watson was charged with two counts of attempted murder and theft of property over $1,000.
