Yesterday the area was blocked from about 3:30 until 7:00 pm. I think it was a hostage situation with a husband and wife, but that is all I know. Anyone have any more info. I'm a little concerned because I live in the area with my child.

I know I saw this too..we had to take the back way in..we live on Porterhouse. We thought it was odd because of all the police cars and one ambulance sitting in the car wash parking lot...I have been trying to find out what it was all about as well.

I saw it too. I thought i saw a news crew there, but I did not see anything on the news about it... I guess since we are in lil ol' Crowley, we are not worth making the news...

I live on Briar Cir. Apparently it was a hostage situation that ended in suicide. There is a listing on the medical examiners site for it.

I live right across the street and the police and news crews were incredibly quiet about this situation that they asked us to leave our house for which we could'nt do (no car) so were told to stay in the back of the house. (We didn't. We had to watch what was going on, our curiosity getting the better of us.) We know that the wife\girlfriend was taken away in handcuffs. There was someone taken away on a stretcher, then much later a body was taken away by the coroner. I think it should have been newsworthy unless there is some kind of gag order. But, still, I'd really like to know what caused a 4 hr. standoff right across the street from me.

Sorry that you were misinformed Lou Ann. The people that lived in that house were my sister and her husband. It was a very tragic thing that happened and I will not go into details. I will however say that my sister was not arrested and was at Crowley Police Dept for her safety during the entire process. I would know this cause I was with her the entire time.

I am the wife that lives at the address where this incident took place and I left the house at 5:30a.m. the morning of 11/19. My husband was home alone and had some suicidal tendencies which I went to get him some help to prevent exactly what happened. I was at the police dept the entire day with my sister while this was taken place. Nobody was arrested and nobody was held hostage. They were trying to negotitate with my husband to rescue him to safety. It ended in a horrible tragedy and I'm absolutely beyond devastated. Thank you all for your concern.

Thank you all so much for the information. I am truly sorry for his wife and family. Suicide is never easy on the ones left behind. I also live on Briar Cir down the street from the incident. The safety for my child and myself were my concerns at the beginning, now my concerns are for the family. God bless, and may he help you through this.
