SOUTH 13th STANDOFF ENDS PEACEFULLY

(Richmond, IN)--A standoff in the 200 block of South 13th in Richmond ended peacefully Monday night.  A man later identified as 53-year-old Martin Beaty barricaded himself inside an apartment and refused to speak with officers who were there to investigate a report that Beaty had fired a shotgun inside a few days ago.  Monday night, officers saw Beaty take pills and chase it with alcohol.  SWAT Team members then used an electronic control device to get control of Beaty.  He was taken to Reid Health.
