CADDO PARISH, La. (KSLA) - A Mooringsport man was taken into custody on Thursday morning (Dec. 16) after barricading himself inside a home for hours.

Jacob Seth Cannon, 34, is charged with aggravated assault on a peace officer, domestic abuse battery (second offense), and domestic abuse battery with child endangerment.

Dispatchers got the call regarding a domestic incident after 1 a.m. in the 10,000 block of Mooringsport-Latex Road. Cpl. Maggie Boykin responded to the call and was met outside the home by the victim and a small child.

When Cpl. Boykin went inside the house she encountered Cannon, who was barricaded in a bedroom. She attempted to speak with him and noticed the smell of flammable liquid inside the home. Canon then threw the liquid at Boykin and threatened to light himself and her on fire.

Cpl. Boykin went outside and called for backup.

The Sheriff’s Office Special Response Team, negotiators, and detectives responded. During the negotiations, Cannon fired at least one shot from a pistol inside the residence. SRT deputies entered the residence just before 8 a.m. and took Cannon into custody.


He was booked in the Caddo Correctional Center. The incident remains under investigation.
