The Covington News - - Local News -

NOR­CROSS — A man’s stand­off with a Gwin­nett County po­lice SWAT team ended Fri­day af­ter nearly 12 hours, au­thor­i­ties said.

SWAT team mem­bers en­tered the home in Nor­cross where the Shan­non Alan Mar­lowe had been holed up since about 10 p.m. Thurs­day, found the man in the at­tic and were able to talk him into sur­ren­der­ing, county po­lice spokes­woman Cpl. Il­lana Spell­man said.

Po­lice had found a wo­man’s body in the home when of­fi­cers an­swered the ini­tial call Thurs­day night. The of­fi­cers left the house and called in the SWAT team.

Now that the stand­off has ended, Spell­man says po­lice will in­ves­ti­gate how the wo­man died.

The re­la­tion­ship be­tween the man and wo­man was not im­me­di­ately clear. Po­lice have not re­leased the wo­man’s name.

No one was in­jured dur­ing the stand­off.
