Florence Standoff Ends
A Marathon station located at 825 Cox Creek Parkway was the scene of a police standoff earlier today. The small mini-mart sits immediately north of the Helton Drive Sonic at a heavily traveled intersection. Authorities had asked non-essential vehicles to steer clear of the area.
According to the FPD, one man was taken into custody. The suspect was then taken to a local hospital to be checked out. PNS will publish more details if and when they are available.
