Findlay police were involved in a standoff on Bright Road Sunday morning. The Findlay Police Department reports the officers were called about a man with a gun driving a car in the 700 block of Bright Road around 8:10 a.m. Police found the car just south of Fostoria Avenue.
24-year-old Brandon Gipson was behind the wheel and refused to leave the car. He showed the handgun several times and indicated he would harm himself. While talking to police on a cell phone, he also told them he had a gunshot wound to his left arm. Officers were able to convince Gipson to leave his car. He was taken to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo by medical helicopter.
Investigators say a woman who identified herself as Gipson’s girlfriend first called police. She told them Gipson had shot himself in the arm and then left in his car. She followed him in her own car.
The case remains under investigation. Charges are being considered.by Read More →
