BALTIMORE STANDING TOGETHER: Watch town hall Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. on WJZ, as leaders address issues the city is facing.

LANHAM, Md. (AP) — Prince George’s County police say they took a man into custody after an armed standoff that lasted nearly nine hours.

The man was arrested around 9 a.m. Sunday. Police say he jumped out a back window of the home in Lanham where he had barricaded himself.

Police say the man threatened a police officer with a handgun, and the officer fired at him and missed. A police dog chased the man and bit him on the arm, holding on until officers caught up and arrested him.

Police haven’t released the man’s name. Police say the man lived in the home and was destroying items inside during the standoff. He was believed to have been under the influence of PCP.

The man will face charges including assault of a police officer.
