WHITE COUNTY STAND-OFF ENDS WITH FIRE AT SUSPECT’S HOME

///
Comments are Off

Authorities answering a domestic assault call in White County had their hands full Thursday after the situation ended in the suspect’s house burning. Authorities were called to a residence on Black Oak Cemetery Rd. around 8 PM by the wife of the suspect, 66-year-old Conrad Gagle after she had been in a violent confrontation with him. She also said that Gagle had weapons inside the home. The SWAT Team, fire, and EMS services established a base adjacent to the home, and after attempts to talk Gagle out of the home failed, a canister of OC gas was deployed forcing the suspect out. He was taken into custody, but almost immediately black smoke started pouring out of the rear of the home in the area of where the canister fell. Fire crews were summoned, but it took nearly 30 minutes before the blaze was extinguished enough for the firefighters to go inside. The house was deemed a total loss and later, a .22 rifle and an SKS rifle were found. Gagle was charged with domestic assault, resisting arrest and unlawful possession of a weapon due to the fact that he is a convicted felon.
