An area man sits in the Caldwell County Jail this week, facing charges of Attempted Capital Murder after an armed standoff with Caldwell County Deputies last week.
On the morning of April 1, 2015, deputies were called to the 1600 block of Homannville Trail to respond to what was believe to be a dom
The situation quickly escalated as a suspect, later identified as Dan Kimbrough, 58, opened fire on the officers from inside the residence.
One patrol unit was damaged, but no one was injured in the standoff, which lasted only moments before Kimbrough was taken into custody while running down the driveway of the residence. Further investigation revealed the walls, floor and ceiling of the home had also been shot during the altercation.
The victim of the domestic dispute, self-identified as Kimbrough’s wife, fled to a neighboring residence to contact the authorities, and reported that Kimbrough, who was reported to be intoxicated, had been hallucinating. She said she was in fear because he kept weapons in the residence.
Kimbrough, who had no prior criminal record in Caldwell County, was booked into the Caldwell County Jail on Wednesday afternoon, with bail set at $2 million, on the charge of Attempted Capital Murder. It was found that he used both a rifle and a handgun in the attack on the deputies.
According to the Caldwell County Sheriff’s Department, the investigation continues, and Kimbrough could face additional charges in relation to the incident.
