Vienna Standoff Continues
Vienna Standoff Continues

Police are still surrounding the home of a southern Illinois man they say has been holed up since Saturday.

State Police won’t release the names of anyone involved, but they say the man shut himself in his rural Vienna home after police responded to a domestic disturbance report. He allegedly threatened to kill a police officer; there’s a perimiter of roughly three quarters of a mile surrounding the house.

Police are asking neighbors to avoid the area.
