MANCHESTER, Md. (WJZ) — A barricade situation in Carroll County ended peacefully Sunday morning.

According to police, Jordan A. Ecker was armed with two assault weapons and two handguns. He allegedly fired a shot early Sunday morning and refused to leave his home in the 4200-block of Hanover Pike.

Police say early Sunday morning, Ecker returned home intoxicated. At some point, he became extremely agitated and fired a shot into a wall and another into a floor. No one was injured.

Police believe Ecker passed out shortly after. A friend who was also at the residence said that once Ecker passed out, he took the guns.

Shortly before 7 a.m., members of the state police Special Tactical Assault Team Element entered the home and arrested Ecker.

Ecker will be evaluated at Carroll Hospital and after he is released, police say he will be charged with reckless endangerment.
