Shooting suspect in custody after six-hour armed standoff
During the standoff, which began shortly after 7 a.m. Friday, Buchanan repeatedly fired random shots into his home and on several occasions, through windows. One of the bullets came within 20 feet of a Ruston officer who was hidden near the house, Ruston Police Chief Randal Hermes said.
The Friday arrest wasn't Buchanan's first encounter with police. During a Labor Day DWI checkpoint, Buchanan was cited for first-offense DWI and open container.
