Sunday evening Lufkin Police arrested Mikel Doyle, 35, of Lufkin, following a four-hour stand off at a home on Augusta Drive.

Around 2:30 p.m. a neighbor reported hearing six shots fired from the home in the 400 block of Augusta Drive. After speaking with a family member, officers learned that Doyle fired shots from a window and that he was possibly coming off a drug binge following domestic troubles. The family member, who immediately evacuated the home, leaving Doyle by himself, said he also threatened to shoot officers arriving on the scene.

The Special Response Team, including two hostage negotiators, and the Department's certified drone pilots responded to the scene.

Augusta Drive was closed to through traffic while negotiators spent the next several hours attempting to make contact with Doyle.

"We evacuated a few neighboring houses, shut down all traffic on the golf course and in the area," Lufkin Police Public Relations Specialist Jessica Pebsworth said. "Our drone pilots notified Angelina County Airport management of our intent to use the drones at this scene. We were then able to get them in the air to establish an aerial view of our perimeter which is huge in terms of officer safety."

At 5:49 p.m., Doyle began communicating with negotiators and within 30 minutes he was taken into custody.

He is charged with deadly conduct.

The street was reopened to traffic once the scene was cleared.

  

Here is some video from the scene as well, including certified drone pilot Det. Brandon White manning one of the Department's two drones:
