MOUNT AYR, Iowa (AP) — A 51-year-old Missouri man has been talked into putting down a shotgun and surrendering to Iowa officers.

Randy Longstreath, of Bethany, Missouri, was arrested around 4:30 a.m. Wednesday after a six-hour standoff south of Mount Ayr (ehr) in southern Iowa's Ringgold County.

The sheriff's office says Longstreath had gone to the home where his wife, stepson and another adult male were staying. The office says Longstreath fired the shotgun and threatened everyone in the home.

The people all escaped without harm before a SWAT team and negotiator arrived. The negotiator eventually persuaded Longstreath to surrender.

Court records say Longstreath faces four charges, including domestic abuse assault. Online court records don't list the name of his attorney.
