The suspect, reportedly suicidal, went into a shed in the backyard and told his brother he was going to kill himself. However, he came out a short time later and surrendered to police.

Police said the shed may have been used to make moonshine or methamphetamines, so bomb technicians are currently searching both the shed and house.

The suspect's identity has not been released at this time.
