KEITHVILLE, La. (KSLA) - Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies have identified a man that barricaded himself in his home around 2 a.m. Wednesday, Oct 6.

Larry Murray, 41, was taken into custody after an hours-long standoff with police.

The incident started when Murray took a picture of a gun magazine and ammunition and posted it on social media. He then sent the picture to family members, threatening to harm them, police say.

Deputies went to check on the family’s house and made sure they were safe. After making sure the family was safe, deputies went to Murray’s house in the 6500 block of Caspiana Lane. When Deputies arrived, Murray reportedly barricaded himself in his house and threatened to harm himself.

Multiple units surrounded the house and closed roads around the area. Deputies also evacuated houses around the barricaded man’s home. Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office negotiators and special response units were at the scene and were able to talk Murray out of the house.

Murray gave himself over to deputies willingly around 7 a.m. and is charged with cyberstalking and resisting arrest. Roads around the area were later reopened.
